Meals On Wheels

What makes the holiday season special for many, spending time with family enjoying a warm meal. But not all East Texas are so fortunate. That's why volunteers with "Meals on Wheels" are giving more than just a warm meal to needy seniors this year.

Recipients will also receive a goodie bag filled with Christmas ornaments, stationary, candles, candy and juices. A small token hoping to spark an extra smile says volunteer Barbara Blevins, "It's so lonely to think that someone's gonna be home by themselves with no food, or even one Christmas gift. So, this really means the world for these people when they get this little bag."

Fifty different East Texas businesses pitched in to sponsor the goodie bags.
