EAT, DRINK & BE MERRY!!!!
Join Santa, Thursday, December 10, 2020, from 6-9PM for a progressive dinner in the heart of the Unique Dining Capital of Texas. Kicking off the festivities at Roanoke’s City Hall at 5:45PM, Santa will lead the way to Foster's Sushi & Grill for a welcome libation and appetizer. Next, it’s off to Los Compadres for dinner and a signature cocktail. While it may be tempting to fill your belly like a bowl full of jelly, be sure to save room for our final stop at Strumolo’s for dessert, coffee, and an espresso martini. Santa’s making a list and checking it twice, there are limited tickets, so he has to be precise.
You Can Help By Volunteering
Volunteers’ warm hearts and helping hands are the glue that holds MMOW programs together. Whether delivering meals, assisting at senior centers, working in our resale boutique, or helping with special events and fundraisers, it is our volunteers’ gift of sharing their time and hearts that makes it possible for MMOW to support our participants’ independence with dignity. Along the way, smiles, hugs, and lasting friendships brighten everyone’s path.
Home-delivered meals – MMOW drivers are the friendly faces that bring good cheer and bright smiles as they well as hot lunch meals Monday through Friday. Meals are prepared by local food partners and picked up at that location. It takes about 1½ hours to deliver the meals for one day. Drivers are usually scheduled to deliver meals once a month, or more frequently if they wish.
Senior Center luncheons – MMOW’s luncheons are special events for our seniors and our luncheon volunteers are MMOW ‘s special hostesses. Volunteers assist with activities, games, and food service. Luncheon days and frequency vary from center to center. Volunteers can schedule as time allows.
Sadie’s Upscale Consignment & Resale – If you love fashion and home décor, Sadie’s is the place for you! Volunteers assist in all areas of MMOW’s resale shop Monday through Saturday. Shifts can are flexible to individual availability between 10:00 a.m. and 6 p.m. Volunteers may schedule on a weekly or monthly schedule as time allows.
