Stark-Tusc Meals on Wheels receives grant award

Published: August 31, 2017 12:00 AM

Meals on Wheels of Stark and Wayne Counties has received a $25,000 grant from the Austin-Bailey Health and Wellness Foundation to support the purchase of two new meal delivery trucks.

"Meals on Wheels is so grateful for the support of the foundation and the impact it will have on the agency," said Ted Watko, CEO of the Stark and Wayne county MOW. "We could not serve our mission without our delivery trucks, and we could not exist without the help of foundations like the Austin-Bailey Health and Wellness Foundation."

Funds from the Austin-Bailey Foundation were combined with designated dollars from MOW's past two fund-raisers to support the purchase. The trucks will enable the agency to deliver nearly 1,400 meals per day throughout Stark and Wayne.
