When KLTV decided to adopt an East Texas charity, I had no idea of the outpouring of letters I'd receive. Some of the most heartwarming and compelling responses came from recipients of Meals on Wheels.
This organization is amazing - delivering more than 3000 meals every day to homebound, disabled and elderly East Texans. Their goal is a simple one. To provide nutritious meals to those in need, preserving their independence as long as possible. Preserving independence. What a great gift to be able to give this "greatest generation".
I received dozens of stories explaining how Meals on Wheels has touched the hearts and improved the lives of so many. Perhaps Bonnie from Diana summed it up best when she wrote, "Meals on Wheels doesn't just deliver meals. They deliver love, attention and caring."
So in the spirit of giving this holiday season, we are proud to announce that KLTV will be adopting Meals on Wheels, providing them with a monetary contribution and use of our airwaves through 2007. We hope you join us too, in supporting Meals on Wheels, making this a Better East Texas.
