Meals on Wheels is excited to be a part of North Texas Giving Day through DonorBridgeTX.org. On Thursday, Sept. 19, donors will be able to go to DonorBridgeTX.org and make a donation to Meals on Wheels (MOW). Through a generous matching funds opportunity, donations will be multiplied. The more initial donations MOW receives, the higher the match amount will be.
Please consider making a donation to MOW on Thursday. Additionally, you can help by getting the word out through your own personal email address book and social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Gmail Google Circles or “create an event” for this date and send it out to your circle of influence. All support will benefit the more than 750 homebound seniors who rely on the Meals on Wheels program each day.
Meals On Wheels and Senior Services of Collin County a non-profit 501(c)(3) was founded in 1976 to serve the rapidly increasing needs of the area’s seniors, providing nutrition to improve their health by preparing and supplying meals to more than 750 homebound and isolated seniors daily. The seniors receiving meals through the Meals on Wheels program are unable to shop and/or prepare a balanced meal for themselves.
