We had the opportunity to visit with leadership from Fort Bend Seniors today and were reminded of the incredible work they do to serve seniors throughout the county.
Fort Bend Seniors (FBS) is committed to helping seniors remain independent by enhancing their quality of life through services and resources. FBS is also the only organization in Fort Bend or Waller County that provides Meals on Wheels to all persons 60 years of age and over, regardless of income.
Each weekday, FBS drivers and volunteers deliver hot, nutritious meals to homebound seniors who are unable to cook for themselves. Volunteers devote just one or two hours a week to deliver meals throughout the county. Many of these dedicated volunteers take a moment to visit with the senior and will sometimes do a light task such as change a light bulb. The volunteers see first hand, that they can make a difference in someone’s life, by brightening their day with a visitor just reminding them that they still matter and someone cares.
Because of the generosity of volunteers, FBS Meals on Wheels program operates with NO wait list. If you're interested in volunteering or want to make a donation visit http://www.fortbendseniors.org/ or call 281-633-7049.
