The willingness you have to help on short notice, often multiple times in a week with multiple routes, is a true picture of accommodation and selflessness. #VolunteerAppreciationWeek
As a substitute driver for our Meals on Wheels program, you not only ensure our clients remain nourished, but also help to fill in for our other volunteers when they need it most.

And, as an employee of @HEB, Tamra and her team helped us pack shelf-stable meals into the cars of our volunteers during our very first shelf-stable meal delivery over a month ago. (photo courtesy of @HEB) https://t.co/Dhf6T3lOXB
Feataured Volunteer: Before the COVID-19 pandemic MOWCTX volunteer Tamra Jones delivered meals each Thursday to homebound seniors. When we began to alter our meal delivery protocols as a response to COVID-19, Tamra still came out to deliver shelf-stable meals.
The sheer number of clients covered each delivery day by our teams is remarkable, and our operations would not be the same without you. We feel lucky to work alongside you and to share a common mission. #VolunteerAppreciationWeek
With so many of our teams holding multiple regular routes, it’s a daily appreciation of ours that this support is in place. Ranging from popular Texas brands down to small, two-person teams made of friends, we’ve seen such a wonderful investment into our team delivery structure.
It is our honor at Meals on Wheels Central Texas to be partnered with so many amazing organizations through our Meals on Wheels program. Boasting over 400 individual teams made up of 6500+ volunteers, this is an incredible representation of Austin’s hard-working citizens! https://t.co/blKulSDNhp
