You can make the holidays bright and merry for Tarrant County's homebound clients!

Many of our clients are isolated and have no family or friends to visit them, making the holidays even more difficult. Our annual gift giving campaign is a wonderful way to remind them that someone cares and is thinking of them during the holidays.

Our goal is to provide a gift to every client. If you or your company/organization/group would like to donate gifts for the clients, please bring those wrapped gifts to the Meals On Wheels office, located at 5740 Airport Freeway in Fort Worth during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, by December 4th OR give us a call and we will be happy to pick them up. Donate as many or as few as you like. Mix and match or keep them all alike---Its all up to you, we are just grateful for your generosity! Be sure to indicate whether the gift is intended for a male or female client. Here is a list of the most popular gift suggestions:
