Providing food for those who are homebound has been an everyday program way before North Texas got swatted by the pandemic for the Visiting Nurse Association of Texas (aka VNA). Thanks to its Meals on Wheels, 4,500 seniors who aren’t able to get out and about receive a meal and “friendly visit” each weekday.
In addition, VNA’s Hospice and Palliative Care provides “kind, compassionate care for those facing terminal illness and support to their families.”
And while volunteers are an integral part of the VNA’s programs, it still takes funds to support the efforts. That’s why its Celebrity Chef event is so vital to keep the wheels rolling, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Meals on Wheels and Hospice and Palliative Care programs.
