HOUSTON, TX — This year will mark the first time that Northwest Assistance Ministries’ (NAM) Meals on Wheels program will deliver a hot, nutritious holiday meal to seniors and disabled adults on Thanksgiving Day. Not only will NAM's clients receive a delicious meal for the holiday they will also receive a friendly smile from a big-hearted volunteer.

“By serving meals to seniors on Thanksgiving Day they will not only get a holiday meal, but a warm holiday greeting from a volunteer,” said Les Cave, NAM’s President/CEO. “We hope that will bring some cheer to a senior who is going to be spending the holiday alone.”

NAM needs volunteer drivers to deliver the meals on Thursday, November 28, 2019. Volunteers will gather at NAM around 8 a.m. to pick up the meals and a short delivery route. Once the last meal on the volunteer’s route is delivered they can go straight home; just in time to enjoy their own Thanksgiving meal with their family and friends.

This opportunity is an easy and effective way for organizations and individuals to become involved in their local community. Youth of all ages may also participate alongside a parent/guardian, making this a fitting opportunity for youth groups, scouts, and parents with young children.

If you would like to serve and give back to the community Thanksgiving morning, please visit and sign-up online.
