In 2012, the Meals on Wheels (MOW) program in Palo Pinto County will serve over 50,000 meals to more than 350 homebound seniors. For many seniors, the daily meal delivery is a lifeline, both nutritionally and through reduced social isolation. Most clients live on less than $1,000 a month of income and without MOW support they would go hungry. Nationally, 1 in 9 seniors report that they experience hunger or worry about having enough food to eat. Thanks to the generous support of our community, we have taken the pledge to end senior hunger in Palo Pinto County.
Now in our fifth year, we’re more committed than ever to the idea of “neighbor helping neighbor.” Our vision is to champion a community where older Americans are valued and honored. Where their physical, emotional, and social needs are met. Where they can remain self-sufficient and live in their own homes. And where their past contributions and the vital role they play today are both recognized and celebrated. Please join us in this commitment to our homebound seniors.
People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. ~ Maya Angelou
