Meals-on-Wheels plans to build a 16,000 square foot building where it can begin to cook and prepare meals for the homebound elderly and disabled citizens in its two-county service area. It is expected that Meals-on-Wheels will initially provide 1,100 meals at the projected opening of the facility in 2011. Meals-on-Wheels plans to raise $3 million dollars for the facility’s construction. The Campaign, to date, has raised over $900,000 for this project.
“With events like this one and the support of our wonderful donors, we will make the building the kitchen a reality,” Vinsen Faris, executive director said. "Having our own kitchen is an incredible opportunity for us, as it will solidify our future, and allow us to better serve those who need services,” he added.
Meals-on-Wheels is a community-based non-profit organization serving the residents of Johnson and Ellis counties for over 32 years. If you are interested in attending the event, learning more about the kitchen project, volunteering your time, making a donation, or if you know of someone who could benefit from Meals-on-Wheels services, please contact the Meals-on-Wheels offices at 817-558-2840, 972-351-9943 or online at www.servingthechildrenofyesterday.org.
