Our Mission :
To provide visionary leadership and to develop partnerships to promote the dignity and independence of our elderly seniors by providing nutritious meals and quality services.

 Wise County Committee on Aging, Inc., Meals on Wheels, is a non-profit 501-(C)(3) group which provides hot, nourishing meals to 125+ senior citizens who are unable to prepare meals for themselves or who do not have others to do so for them. More Seniors are being added to the program every month as the amount of Seniors with needs grow daily. The daily contact with our VOLUNTEERS, as well as the nutritious meals, allow frail, homebound seniors to remain in their own homes where they can maintain their independence. For some of the clients, the daily well-check and the love and concern shared by our VOLUNTEERS is the only contact they have with the rest of the world.

We provide health and nutritional information through our monthly newsletter, and we assist them with referrals for any other services they may need. By providing them a copy of thelocal newspaper, our group helps keep them connected to the rest of the community in which they live..

On Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM, our group also provides transportation for clients to the doctor's office, pharmacy, grocery store, beauty shop, etc. to meet their individual needs.

Won't you join us in providing these important services to our most deserving citizens? We need you!

Recent research studies by the Meals on Wheels Association of America have revealed that the problem of senior hunger in America is indeed growing worse.  Currently, one in nine seniors is at risk of hunger in the United States. You can help end this trend by pledging $20 per month to adopt one of our senior clients. Your $20, along with donations from others, will help to provide meals for one person per month. At the end of the year, you will receive a tax statement of your contributions. Won't you help us end this cycle in Wise County? Our older homebound seniors are counting on you. Thanks for your generosity.
