Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels operates a fleet of 9 meal delivery vans across 2 counties in Texas with – some routes clocking up to 220 miles a day! Last year to protect our seniors and drivers from COVID-19, we transitioned to weekly deliveries of frozen meals to more than 2,100 homebound seniors, serving a record number – almost 438,000 meals in Fort Bend and Waller Counties!
Now, we are preparing to resume daily deliveries of hot meals – but some of our vans are showing their age. We’d like to make sure nothing gets in the way of us delivering hot, nutritious meals to the seniors in our community – but we need your help to make this happen!
You can help us replace one of our (out-dated) delivery vehicles! Due to the shortages of vehicles from the manufacturers, we need to get an order placed before the situation becomes critical… but FIRST we must collect the funds!
Help us get a new, reliable delivery van to keep our drivers safe on the roads and ensure homebound seniors get the meals and support they need each and every day!
5/7/2021 – REOPENING! After more than a year of serving our Congregate participants in their homes, we are thrilled to announce the first of our centers will reopen Monday, June 7th, 9:00 am! The Bud O’Shieles Community Center, located at 1330 Band Road in Rosenberg, will welcome seniors back with activities, including bingo, art and fitness classes, as well as a hot meal. Most importantly, the center will provide socialization that has been sorely missed as the pandemic stretched on.
As we take this first step towards fully reopening all of our centers, we will continue to follow all health guidelines and recommendations to ensure the continued safety of our seniors, volunteers, and staff members. This includes regularly sanitizing hard surfaces, encouraging participants wear masks, and providing additional space for social distancing. This reopening would not have been possible without YOUR support over the past year, and the many in our community who have volunteered their time or gifts to support our seniors. So, from all of us, thank you – for helping us welcome our family back home.
|An AmazonSmile “Welcome Back” wishlist has been created with items we will need for the congregate centers to welcome our senior clients back. The list includes bingo prizes, art class supplies and cleaning supplies.|
We continue to monitor the Coronavirus and follow official recommendations, as we work towards reopening our 8 remaining seniors centers.
