Review for Meals on Wheels of Alameda County, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered with Alameda County Meals on Wheels since I moved to California 4.5 years ago. I have had the opportunity to not only learn about the local programs and work on events with them, but deliver meals as well. This organization is run by incredible, hard-working people that genuinely care about the well-being of these senior citizens. Without these meals, some of these individuals would never eat as they are unable to get food on their own. I have also worked on the two large events run by the organization, and the effort put in to raising funds for the meal recipients is unbelieveable. The board of directors contribute so much as well with recruitment, donations, and helping to run the organization as efficient as possible. The executive director also pours her heart and soul in to the organization to help these homebound senior citizens as best they can. They have raised record funds in the most recent years to help fund the location meals on wheels organizations. Alameda County Meals on Wheels is a blessing to the senior community.
