Letter: Meals on Wheels a real team effort


Prescott Meals on Wheels recently honored over 120 of our volunteers at a dinner. A delightful meal was prepared by The Mountain Institute of Culinary Arts at Chino Valley High School under the direction of Chef Vince Enserro. Without the assistance of many volunteers and donors, Prescott Meals on Wheels would not be able to prepare and deliver over 300 well-balanced, nutritional meals each day to homebound seniors and those with permanent or temporary disabilities. Volunteers box the food and pack it in hot and cold thermos containers, drive their own vehicles to deliver the meals, staff the buffet line, help people get food to their tables, and clear the tables in the Viola Jimulla dining room. Volunteers also assist in the Thrift Store and with fund raising projects.

A special thank you goes to our event supporters: The Golden Corral Restaurant; The Hensley Beverage Company; Just Ask Rental-True Value; Linda Parrish of Perfect Events Catering, and Dick and Gloria Williams of Bar 2 Sign Company.

Also, a special thank you goes to the Yavapai Classic Cruisers. The Yavapai Classic Cruisers annually raise funds to help support the Meals on Wheels programs in our area. They recently made a $1,000 donation to PMOW to help us further our mission of providing services that enable older people to maintain independent living with safety and dignity. Our primary mission is to provide one hot nourishing meal per day. Our volunteers deliver meals to our elderly and homebound as well as serving nutritious meals in our Viola Jimulla dining room every Monday through Friday.

A special thank you also goes out to all of our supporters who have made contributions through the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit to help Meals on Wheels continue to help our community.

For further information, to make a donation, or to sign up for our services, call 445-7630.
