I believe in the critical importance of Meals on Wheels Montgomery County. Approximately 600 homebound seniors in Montgomery County receive meals which helps them remain safe and happy in their homes while avoiding the high costs of nursing home care. The stress of caregiving often felt by their family, friends, and neighbors is reduced by the Meals on Wheels program and seniors can keep their dignity.
Our Montgomery County senior population is growing at exponential rates. Meals on Wheels depends heavily on volunteers, foundations, and other donations to meet this growing demand for services. Financial assistance from our county government is also necessary and appropriate to support these services. With less than 10% administrative expenses, Meals on Wheels is one of the best stewards for distributing these resources.
Meals on Wheels Montgomery County’s vision is “A community nourishing, enriching, and strengthening seniors, improving the lives of the elderly in the Montgomery County area.” And their mission is “To foster the independence and dignity of homebound seniors in Montgomery County by providing them with nutritious meals, transportation, and caring connections.” For more information go to https://www.mowmc.org/.
