February 2013 PROPS Partner – Meals on Wheels and More

Print

We are proud to support Meals on Wheels and more this month at EcoClean.  As our February PROPS partner, MOWAM will receive 5% of our Wednesday sales. Come visit us with your load of cleaning any Wednesday this month to make a difference for this amazing organization.

Meals on Wheels and More seeks to nourish and enrich the lives of the homebound and other people in need through programs that promote dignity and independent living.

This year 2013, MOWAM celebrates 41 years of service in the Greater Austin area.  What began as a program of eight volunteers serving 29 seniors has now expanded into a multi-service organization of nearly 7,000 volunteers reaching more than 5,000 of our Greater Austin neighbors in need.  Aside from preparing and delivering meals, MOWAM also offers many other programs designed to keep people healthy and living in their own homes.

MOWAM is a 501 c 3 organization and is independent and locally-run.  Below is a brief description of MOWAM’s programs.

Meals Program

Volunteers deliver over 2,000 hot, nutritious lunch-time meals every weekday to homebound elderly or disabled clients who can no longer prepare balanced meals.  Individual volunteers drive one lunch hour per weekday. Volunteers always needed!  Contact them to learn more.  Denise Jimenez djimenez@mealsonwheelsandmore.org  476-6325 x143

Mike’s Place

Every Tuesday and Wednesday Mike’s Place provides individuals living with Alzheimer’s Disease and other types of memory loss and dementia opportunities to socialize and have fun with stimulating and appropriate activities in a warm, safe, and caring environment. At the same time, caregivers have a bit of free time to relax.
