MOW clients enjoy quality of life

Michaele Bishop of Meals-on-Wheel arrives with lunch for Alma resident Dixie Dent.

Dixie Dent of Alma loves her brood of porch pooches. Lounging on her screened-in deck, the canines boisterously announce the arrival of anyone who dares to approach the porch.

Susie Hamilton of Waxahachie is quick to ask for a hug. Though wheelchair bound, this feisty senior citizen doesn’t let it slow down her enthusiasm.  Those who know her can count on her request for an embrace each time they knock at her door.

Ray and Georgia Cavender of Midlothian love to talk about the family of tortoises that took up residency at the neighboring home.  Not just any turtle, mind you, but a large-scale land dweller, perhaps an Aldabra or Culcata species that have been reported to live for hundreds of years.

What do these four Ellis County residents have in common? They’re all Meals-on-Wheels clients who enjoy living independent lives. Thanks to the dedication of the volunteers and their daily visits, along with the generosity of donors, more than 700 Meals-on-Wheels clients in Johnson and Ellis Counties continue to benefit from services.
