The Meals on Wheels Program in Wichita Falls is a vital lifeline for hundreds of seniors in our city.  Today and every day Monday through Friday, volunteers will deliver hot meals to over 800 folks.  For many of these people, the Meals on Wheels delivery person will be the only face they see all day.

Tonight, beginning at 6pm, dozens of volunteers will gather at the Red Door Senior Center at 10th and Burnett for the Meals on Wheels Phone-A-Thon.  Many of you will be getting calls asking for your help by donating as little as $5 to help feed one hungry senior citizen.  That’s all it takes to provide a single meal, delivered to their door.

So tonight, if you get that call, please say yes and give whatever you can.  This is one program that proves that we, the people, can come together and care for each other in a big way, with just a little bit of effort.  You make donations right now at by clicking here and charge your donation to your Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover or PayPal account.

On behalf of the Red Door, Green Door and Meals on Wheels…thank you.
