Thank you Decatur County from Meals on Wheels


As you can see, this is quite a list! MOW thanks these special people and appreciates all they do to ensure that MOW can continue growing and serving Greensburg.

Greensburg MOW also extends a heartfelt “thank you” to: Morning Breeze; Aspen Place Health Campus; Arbor Grove; and Skybird Manor. All are huge MOW supporters. They each hold one of our fundraisers throughout the year. Aspen Place will also host our 2014 Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon and Morning Breeze and Arbor Grove will provide gifts for each of our drivers. We thank each of these facilities for their support!

Our thanks also go to MainSource for presenting each of our drivers with a gas gift card at the luncheon. They support MOW weekly as our banking source and offer a sign of appreciation to our drivers with their gift.

MOW meals are prepared at Decatur County Memorial Hospital, whose dietary department goes above and beyond on a daily basis to ensure that a hot, well-balanced, delicious meal is sent to each of our clients. A big thank you to them for their hard work!

I hope I haven’t forgotten anybody. If I did, I apologize; as you can see, it takes a village to run MOW!

For those reading this and thinking about supporting MOW, please call me at 663-6099 with any questions. If you want to help but are unable to deliver, just watch the paper and listen to WTRE; MOW holds many fundraisers during May and later in the year.

We will offer discount cards, good for one year, for $5 beginning in mid-May. We will also be the recipient of WTRE’s Birthday and Anniversary Month in May. If you know someone with a birthday or anniversary during May, call WTRE at 663-8733 and MOW will receive a penny per year, courtesy of Kunz Farm Repair.
