Volunteers’ warm hearts and helping hands are the glue that holds MMOW programs together. Whether delivering meals, assisting at senior centers, working in our resale boutique, or helping with special events and fundraisers, it is our volunteers’ gift of sharing their time and hearts that makes it possible for MMOW to support our participants’ independence with dignity. Along the way, smiles, hugs, and lasting friendships brighten everyone’s path.
MMOW drivers are the friendly faces that bring good cheer and bright smiles as well as hot lunch meals Monday through Friday. Meals are prepared by local food partners and picked up at that location. It takes about 1½ hours to deliver the meals for one day. Drivers are usually scheduled to deliver meals once a month, or more frequently if they wish.
Senior Center luncheons – MMOW’s luncheons are special events for our seniors and our luncheon volunteers are MMOW ‘s special hostesses. Volunteers assist with activities, games, and food service. Luncheon days and frequency vary from center to center. Volunteers can schedule as time allows.
Sadie’s Upscale Consignment & Resale – If you love fashion and home décor, Sadie’s is the place for you! Volunteers assist in all areas of MMOW’s resale shop Monday through Saturday. Shifts can are flexible to individual availability between 10:00 a.m. and 6 p.m. Volunteers may schedule on a weekly or monthly schedule as time allows.
The Darlene Terpening Outstanding Service Award was created to honor Darlene’s legacy and her spirit. As an organizer of Colleyville Meals On Wheels, a volunteer then staff member at Sadie’s, and MMOW’s Program Director, she not only gave of herself; she inspired others to give as well.
The Rob Timmons Spirit Award was created in 2012 in memory of a long time board member, Rob Timmons. Rob’s dedication and giving spirit was inspirational to all who had the pleasure of knowing and working with him.
This award, established in 2002 by Scott Murray in honor of Byron and Peggy Nelson’s tenth year of involvement with the MMOW golf tournament, honors a special volunteer who has given at least ten years of service to MMOW and whose support has touched many areas of our organization.
Just as a shining star illuminates the sky, MMOW’s Shining Stars have brightened our organization in countless ways.
