Testimonials

“Serving as Chairperson of the CCOA has its rewards but none of my community service has been more rewarding than delivering Meals on Wheels. Meals on Wheels delivers a physical need and an emotional and spiritual connection. Once you get to know your clients they become family. Each one is appreciative for different reasons. Those that I deliver to make more of an impact on my life than I ever expected. We need to make sure the Meals on Wheels program stays a priority in our community and all across America.”
– Steve Watson, Chairman, CCOA Board of Directors

“I enjoy giving back to the community by volunteering at the Senior Center. It is very heartwarming to interact and see the joy and fun they have with the exceptional leaders who work to help and support the seniors in multiple areas. They have so many events, outings, and health related activities. It’s fun to watch the joy the seniors have with the wonderful support and assistance they receive”

On 8/20/18,  a Meals on Wheels volunteer reported that the client did not come to the door which was very unusual as the client is always sitting in the living room with the door unlocked waiting for her visit with the volunteers. After following the emergency response protocol the client was found on the floor. She had fallen over the weekend and remained there until the MOW volunteer discovered them. The client was taken to hospital.
