I have been privileged to be a volunteer with Meals on Wheels of Summerville since 1989. I have been in the fortunate position to refer many of my senior patients to the program as volunteers. We at MOW are in constant need of volunteers to help prepare or deliver nutritious noon meals to the elderly, homebound, isolated, or incapacitated to the extent that good food preparation is impossible. This activity usually takes about an hour; from 11:15 a.m. until about 12:15 p.m.
Meals on Wheels is a community sponsored program which receives no Government funding. Our program survives from the generosity of people who care deeply about supplying a meal to those who otherwise would not be fed that day. In some cases we are the only visitors our recipients will see. That is reason enough to be part of this program.
Contributions from caring individuals, churches, organizations, and businesses make it possible for Meals on Wheels to continue serving others.
If you are moved to do so, contributions are tax deductible and very welcomed. Our address is P.O. Box 592 Summerville, SC 29484.
