2017 Share the Love Square

Meals on Wheels Plus is proud to announce that it will be participating in the tenth annual Subaru Share the Love Event as a member of Meals on Wheels America – one of four national Share the Love charitable partners supported through the promotion. From November 16, 2017 to January 2, 2018, Subaru of America will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to the customer's choice of participating charity.

Subaru and its retailers support Meals on Wheels because it’s part of their commitment—to leaving the world a better place than they found it through the core values of trust and love.

Even though we do not have a Subaru Dealership here in Abilene, we will still qualify for a "Subaru Share the Love Event" grant. I you are planning on purchasing or leasing a new Subaru, please let the dealer know that Meals on Wheels America is your choice for the charity that will receive the $250.00 donation.

Meals on Wheels Plus Receives $30,000 Challenge Grant

The Carl C. Anderson Sr. & Marie Jo Anderson Charitable Foundation in Austin has offered to match  dollar-for-dollar all donations made to Meals on Wheels Plus, up to $30,000, to serve meals to people on the waiting list. 

Meals on Wheels Plus currently receives Title XX funds through the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. It covers part of the cost of meals for a number of low-income people. But funding is limited and there is a waiting list of people who need free meals under Title XX.

All donations received will be eligible for the waiting list matching funds grant, which will provide meals for someone who is hungry, elderly, and/or disabled, in the Abilene, Hawley, Eula, Potosi, Winters, Ballinger and Rowena area.

“This Challenge Grant is an exciting opportunity, and it couldn’t come at a more critical moment”, said Betty Bradly, Executive Director of Meals on Wheels Plus.

She went on to say “Meals on Wheels Plus is enduring a difficult time.  A growing aging population — along with rising prices of food, utilities, and medical care, puts more seniors and adults with disabilities at risk.  Every day we deliver more than 1,000 meals and the requests for meals arrive every day.”

Meals on Wheels Plus serves the frailest, most vulnerable and physically impaired adult neighbors throughout the Abilene area and much of Runnels County, and often provides the only nutritious meal and human contact they will receive in a day.

Please send contributions to Meals on Wheels Plus, Inc. - P. 0.   Box 903, Abilene, TX 79604. You may also donate on-line . Please be sure to add the word "waiting list" when making your donation.


The time to act is now! Please write and call our Congressmen in Washington, DC and tell them: Do not eliminate the Social Services Block Grant that Meals on Wheels Plus depends on for 39% of their $2.1 million annual budget.

                      Breakfast Program Suspended Due to Lack of Funding


breakfast story
Meals on Wheels Plus is temporarily suspending its three-day-a-week breakfast program due to a financial shortfall. The community can help by making financial donations and also by volunteering to deliver meals. Whenever a volunteer driver isn’t available for a route, a staff person has to fill in and is paid mileage, which adds to expenses. To donate money or to volunteer, contact the office at 672-5050 or donate online. Checks may be mailed to Meals on Wheels Plus, 717 N. 10th St., Abilene, 79601.
