As a donor and volunteer, I see how much more Meals on Wheels TC does than just deliver meals. They provide a way for seniors to stay in their homes. They provide resources for those that need them. They provide a friendly face and listening ear. They preserve dignity!
MOW is a good steward of their resources.

Meals on Wheels goes above and beyond to help the community and care for the elderly. They fulfill a need that most people do not know exists until they are the ones in need. Providing more than meals, but a since of family, friendship and companionship to not only their clients but every house on each route. Neighbors, family members and caregivers all feel the comfort of knowing a volunteer will be back soon.
