Recently, 113 gifts were distributed to Meals-on-Wheels clients in Ellis County. 

These gifts were a part of “Be a Santa to a Senior,” a Holiday program made possible by a partnership with Home Instead Senior Care and the Waxahachie Senior Center.

Ellis County Clients filled out wish lists for personal care items and other needs, and members of the community selected and bought gifts for each client. 

“Be a Santa to a Senior helped us fulfill some of our clients’ needs, as well as treat them to a Holiday gift they might otherwise not get,” said Lisa Hicks, Meals-on-Wheels community development coordinator. 

“One Waxahachie client asked for a new robe, slippers and socks to help her prepare for the coming cold weather.” 

The gifts were distributed by volunteers the week before Christmas with the help of volunteers from Home Instead Senior Care and the Waxahachie Senior Center.

Meals-on-Wheels is a community-based, non-profit organization serving the homebound elderly and disabled residents throughout Johnson & Ellis County for 35 years. 

If interested in volunteering, or know of someone who could benefit from Meals-on-Wheels services, call 972-351-9943, or online at www.servingthechildrenofyesterday.org.
