My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Ypsilanti Meals On Wheels, Ypsilanti, MI, USA
I am a volunteer for Chit Chat Chums which is something YMOW created to help during this pandemic since the delivery people can't meet face to face with the clients now. I call the same 10 clients every week and chat with them to make sure they have plenty of food, medicine, toilet paper, etc. They look forward to my calls and tell me things that they need or things they need help with. They count on the food and many do not have anything else to eat. Sometimes they need help setting up a doctor appointment, a home repair or just need to talk to someone who cares and will listen to them. YMOW is much more than a meal! They care about their physical and mental health and can get video or telephone calls from the social worker, therapists, nurses etc. Many are excited about getting a raised flower bed outside their home that they can garden in for free! YMOW is such a great part of Ypsilanti and I am proud to be associated with them!
