Santa delivers meals and gifts with volunteer Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County
Meals On Wheels volunteer, Elizabeth Parks, and Santa Claus are delivering meals and holiday gifts to two clients on Friday, December 19th. Meals On Wheels volunteers will deliver gifts to each of our more than 2,300 clients this holiday season. Hundreds of wrapped gifts are donated each year by volunteers and other caring individuals, who drop them off at our office so they can be distributed to clients. Meals On Wheels knows that Santa will bring joy to these clients and raise awareness of the need for additional meal-delivery volunteers.
We would like for you to meet at our agency at 11:45 a.m. so we can go to the client’s houses together. If you are unable to meet at our agency, please call David and he will give you the two addresses. The agency address is 320 South Fwy, Fort Worth, TX 76104. While at the agency, you may interview Nedra Cutler, Vice President of Volunteer Services who will be able to tell you the need for volunteers.
Meals On Wheels is in need of additional volunteers to deliver meals in Tarrant County, especially in East Fort Worth. We serve 286 homebound residents in the eastern part of Fort Worth and desperately need 25 additional volunteers to staff the open routes. Without new volunteers, 119 residents may not receive meals. Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County has never had a waiting list for services, but with this shortage of volunteers, new recipients may be placed on a waiting list.
