Over the years, Meals on Wheels has relied on the generosity of large corporate agencies, small businesses and the general community. Each week, there are hundreds of lives that are impacted by our charitable volunteers. Whether you’re dedicated to helping once a week, a month, or even a few times a year, your assistance is valuable to us and to our enduring mission statement since our doors opened in 1969.
