Meals on Wheels receives matching grant

Double your donation dollars now to support seniors in Rockwall County

(ROCKWALL, TX – June 28, 2018) Meals on Wheels Senior Services of Rockwall County announced today that the Carl C. Anderson, Sr. and Marie Jo Anderson Charitable Foundation out of Austin, Texas will match donations through the end of the year up to $30,000. Since 2012, The Anderson Foundation has been a continued supporter of MOWSS, with a heart for the its mission, and to serve the seniors and disabled citizens of Rockwall County.

“If you have an elderly neighbor, friend or family member, you can play a key role in making their lives easier by making a donation today. In doing this, you could be providing some valuable help. MOWSS is literally the difference between remaining in their own homes and needing to relocate to a nursing facility. The nutritious meal, friendly visit and safety check help them cope with three of the biggest threats of aging: hunger, isolation and loss of independence,” said Margie VerHagen, MOWSS Executive Director. “Research proves that when seniors have the right support, they gain greater quality of life, need fewer hospital stays and live longer. The Anderson Foundation understands this, and the need for further funding. That is what makes this Matching Grant so vital to MOWSS.”

MOWSS will provide over 65,000 meals to more than 475 seniors and disabled citizens in Rockwall County in 2018 alone. Projected numbers, suggest that Rockwall County will be home to 22,000 plus seniors by next year. Community support is vital to the success of MOWSS’ mission, and helps guarantee that every senior is provided a nutritious meal, daily human contact, and supportive services.

The community’s continual support for the organization enhances the quality of the services to make immediate impacts in the lives of homebound seniors.  All donations made to MOWSS and this Matching Grant are tax deductible and very much needed and appreciated.

Donations can be made online at www.rockwallmealsonwheels.org, brought or sent directly to MOWSS office located at 950 Williams Street Bldg. C, Rockwall, TX 75087, or by phone at 972-771-9514.
