12/4: It’s time for our daily spotlight, and today we are looking at Meals on Wheels and More!
Meals on Wheels and More has operated in Austin since the early 70’s, and is now serving 3,000 meals to homebound and disabled individuals every Monday through Friday. Just like their name says, they offer meals and so much more to their clients. Home repairs, grocery shopping, even pet care are just a few of the services they offer which provide the chance to thrive to those members of our community in need.
Beginning on December 7th and running through the 16th, you can “Share the Love” and Stuff a Subaru! Austin Subaru is teaming up with Meals on Wheels to help make life brighter for folks in need this holiday season. You can bring items like new blankets, toiletries, or gift cards to HEB to help someone who is homebound. Volunteers with Meals on Wheels will assemble gift baskets for their clients from the donated items. Last year they were able to make 900 baskets, and this year they are aiming for 1,000! If you’d like to make a donation, you can drop your items off at Central Kitchen, located at 3227 E. 5th St. 78702. There are multiple volunteer opportunities available throughout the year. Check out their website to see how you can get involved!
