Review for Meals on Wheels Central Texas, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

At a time when our public sector is growing harsher with its choices… choosing to add to the burdens of those who have nothing (or next to nothing)… and at a time when our economy is pushing more families to their limits… the role of organizations like Austin’s own Meals on Wheels and More becomes even more critical.

As a donor, I look for an organization that is as creative and as resourceful as those who are scraping to get by. I expect that organization to be compassionate. But that compassion must be married to deep competence if not excellence or that compassion, in real terms, will be unsustainable. Finally, I look for an organization who has a leader with a commitment to service coursing through his or her veins… and who wants nothing more than to be useful and to help our “modern lepers”… the ones we shun and a turn a blind eye toward. I am fortunate to have found one such organization and one such leader: Meals on Wheels and More… and Dan Pruett.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

... having the pleasure of meeting with some of Meals on Wheels and More's clients. They feel respected... served. And listened to.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

... be a multi-millionaire and be able to give much more... happily, I might add.

Role:  Board Member & Primarily, I'm a donor... and a volunteer on the Board of Directors.
