TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Meals On Wheels of East Texas received a grant from the Junior League of Tyler and used the funds to buy a KIA Sedona van. The van is going to be used in Smith County and will help serve the Whitehouse area.

The van’s capacity size will allow the organization to serve an additional 250-300 people in the program.

“It’s a Godsend. any time we get a grant that enables us to fulfill a need, there is nothing more that we could ask for. It makes a huge difference in what we do here and it also makes a huge difference in the people who work here, who drives these vehicles because now this driver has a brand new vehicle to drive,” said Trudy Williams, executive director for Meals on Wheels of East Texas.
