Meals on Wheels of Odessa currently serves about 666 homebound seniors and disabled clients throughout the city of Odessa, West Odessa and Ector County. Most areas in the city of Odessa don’t have visible address numbers making it difficult for drivers to locate the client’s homes.
(Craig Stoker, Executive Director-Meals on Wheels/Odessa, Texas)
Each painted and stenciled brick runs about $5.
Meals on Wheels of Odessa need volunteers. Visit the Meals on Wheels of Odessa at www.mowo.org for information.
