Candy celebrates President's day!
Some pets of Meals-on-Wheels are celebrating President's Day with treat bags put together by Whitt, a local high school student. He wanted his service project for school to help seniors' pets!
Candy is looking very forward to her treats! Her pet Mom Brenda who receives Meals-on-Wheels from us made sure Candy was dressed in her sweater for the picture. Isn't Candy just too cute?
Pets provide so much companionship for seniors. Our amazing Meals-on-Wheels community of volunteers wants to help seniors and their pets too!

We are having a great time!
We have had several companies donate Christmas presents for our seniors who will not receive any presents. We have one wonderful company who did nearly 1,000 Christmas cards for all of our seniors! It is so much fun to play Santa and see how happy it makes our seniors.
We delivered in October over 10,000 pounds of donated pet food from Mars Petcare to the pets of our seniors. We know pets are often the only family of seniors so we want to make sure they have food also.
Recently, the Titans came to help us pack meals. They always bring so much enthusiasm for our seniors!
