304: Meals on Wheels of Long Beach shows us how to be thankful

Episode Notes

Meals on Wheels of Long Beach, founded in 1971, has made it their mission to make sure the chronically ill, seniors, veterans and disabled people can remain independent and safe in their own homes for as long as possible.

In Long Beach, Meals on Wheels serves approximately 600 clients Monday through Friday and relies on the generosity of volunteers and donations. On this episode of “The Word” podcast, members of the community and Meals on Wheels clients share what they are thankful for this holiday season.

Meals on Wheels Development Coordinator Leta Danielson also joins to talk about the impact Meals on Wheels has beyond providing food to those in need. Danielson encourages us to volunteer or donate by visiting Meals on Wheels here:
