MOWW is a powerful-good organization whose service in our area is duplicated by none. Our home bound clients are gratified daily to welcome their Meals On Wheels volunteer (and not friend) to their home to deliver nutritious meals, the mail, a newspaper, and very welcome conversation. As they like to say, "Changing Lives, One Smile At a Time."
Their administrative organization is small, active, warm, and unpretentious, led by the dynamic CEO RoseMary Regalbuto. Honestly, Meals On Wheels West is a fine organization doing exceptional work for so many.
I started as a volunteer 14 years ago and became so devoted to the organization that I became a board member. Volunteering for MOWW was the most fulfilling thing I had ever done in my life. The impact I made from sharing a few minutes with a homebound person gave me goosebumps on a regular basis. I am now enjoying running the pet program which started with a grant from Miss Lilly's Trading Company. It pays for specialty food and some vet care such as flee medication and check ups. We also get a generous amount of food donated from Centinela Feed and the pets seem to love their Lotus brand food.
This organization is amazing!! Seeing the smiles on the seniors' faces...Priceless!!! The staff is incredible. I recommend volunteering at this event 100 times over!!
Meals on wheels west is a vital compassionate member of our community helping those in need. Thank you.-
I LOVED volunteering for Meals on Wheels West. The staff are incredible: efficient and effective, so volunteers are utilized well and given appreciation from the staff as well as the clients. I've done volunteering with a number of organizations and MOW by far is the best at volunteer management. The service they provide is so necessary to the clients and it is rewarding to be involved.
Seniors are so thankful for your loving care and warm meals! R Barnett
Meals on Wheels West is a great org. We deliver meals AND smiles. Our volunteers are dedicated hard working people of all walks of life and our clients...great people
I have been a volunteer for 5 years and have led a corporate team of volunteers. I really enjoy delivering meals and getting to know the clients. This is a truly live-saving service and the organization is great. The staff is enthusiastic and great to work with.
It has been my pride and pleasure to serve as a volunteer both delivering meals and as a member of the Board of Directors for the past 8 or so years. This organization is vital to the seniors and shut ins everywhere. Delivering the meals is important, of course, but the face to face contact we provide could be their only one of the day. I can't imagine a world without this "human service"!
I have been working with our elderly community for 30 years. This program has consistently served the frailest and most needy.
I have been supporting this program for over 30 years. They have done so much for so many people. I learned about this agency when my neighbor was receiving Meals on Wheels. She fell one day and it was only the immediate call by the volunteer that brought the help she needed. What a great program for those that are homebound and not able to cook or even shop for food.
Meals on Wheels West is a wonderful organization and the people that work there, and volunteers are amazing. I have some neighbors who have received meals from them (along with the daily newspaper) AND it has helped them stay healthy and living in their own homes.
I cannot thank Meals On Wheels West enough for being there for me in my time of need. What would I have done without you? The food is good and definitely nutritious and I started feeling much better after a week. The volunteers are a god-send, and the newspapers and fresh fruit they bring along with the meals is very much appreciated
Meals On Wheels West takes great care of my neighbor. She is always happy to see the volunteer that brings the meals.
I have been both a volunteer and a donor to Meals-on-wheels for 15 years. The people I come in contact with weekly are so appreciative of the meals they receive as well as the interaction with caring volunteers. Meals-on-wheels has a supportive staff that makes sure the client's needs are met professionally and with great concern for their well-being. This is an established organization that is run well and really works to the advantage of everybody involved.
I volunteered to deliver meals for MOW am very impressed by the determination of their staff in making sure that those in need receive a good meal. I was personally surprised that the need was so real even in an affluent area where I live. You take your 3 meals a day for granted and often forget that many elderly people do not have family to make sure that they get theirs! I met many very appreciative people to whom that knock on the door was extremely important, not only the meal but the friendly face at the door.
