with Jilian Lennon & Colleen Hyche
Sunday, November 19

IMG_6176 2Committed to our seniors since 1973, Meals on Wheels Montgomery County continues to provide home delivered meals, safety checks, and transportation services to homebound seniors living in Montgomery County. With these services, Meals on Wheels Montgomery County’s 550 clients are able to remain safe and happy in their homes, avoid the high costs of nursing home care, and alleviate the stress of caregiving often felt by their family, friends, and neighbors. As our local aging population consistently grows at exponential rates, Meals on Wheels Montgomery County strives to meet the growing demand for services with support from people like you.

Meals on Wheels America is the oldest and largest national organization supporting the more than 5,000 community-based senior nutrition programs across the country that are dedicated to addressing senior hunger and isolation. This network exists in virtually every community in America and, along with more than two million volunteers, delivers the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that enable America’s seniors to live nourished lives with independence and dignity. By providing funding, leadership, research, education and advocacy support, Meals on Wheels America empowers its local member programs to strengthen their communities, one senior at a time.

As Client Liaisons, Colleen Hyche and Jilian Lennon visit and assess the needs of Meals on Wheels applicants  throughout Montgomery County.
