As the need continues to grow and FBS serves more and more seniors in Fort Bend and Waller Counties, community support and funding is critical. There are many ways you can contribute today:
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!
Become a monthly donor, give online, by mail, over the phone, or use your Donor Advised Fund. Ask your payroll department about payroll deduction options and matching programs.
Have an old vehicle you aren’t sure what do to with? Donate your car, truck, boat, or other vehicle to Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels for an easy and impactful way to give. We will have it hauled away for at no cost to you and help with the paperwork! Most vehicle donations are tax-deductible.
