Secret Santa for Seniors
Our Secret Santa for Seniors program will begin November 6th!
This year, we will be holding a Bath Basket Drive! This means, we want you to purchase a bath towel set (bath towel, hand towel, and washcloth) with an extra Christmas goodie (wall calendar, Christmas ornament, bath soaps, lotion, etc) and place them in a nice basket (optional) and a gift bag (for easy delivery by our drivers)! These are much needed, and much appreciated by the many low-income seniors we serve.
Send our Secret Santa Coordinator, Meghan an email to let her know how many seniors you’d like to adopt, and she’ll let you know if how many male, female, or unisex gifts we need! Gifts need to be dropped off at the FBS Administrative Offices (1330 Band Rd) by December 6th. More information found here.
Don’t have time to shop, but want to participate? Purchase a towel set, Christmas goodie, basket, and gift bag through our Amazon Wish List.
Elves On Deck!

Interested in delivering gifts to seniors? Gifts will be delivered to our home-bound seniors during weekday hours from 10am-3pm, the week of December 16th-20th.  Contact our Volunteer Dept to be added to our “Delivery List!”

 

#GivingTuesday New Donor Match!
Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels is excited to participate in #GivingTuesday, a one-day worldwide online giving event!

Make a donation

Every dollar donated gets us one step closer to feeding our goal of 380,000 meals in 2019! Help us help seniors remain independent by enhancing their quality of life through services and resources.

For every new donor we receive until June 2020, your donation will be matched! If you know a friend or family member who has never donated to FBS, their $50, $75 or even $100 donation will be DOUBLED by our generous foundations!
