How Meals on Wheels Atlanta Stepped Up for Its Community PAGE 4

A MEAL FOR EVERY MEMBER OF THE FAMILY Meals on Wheels Goes the Extra Mile

On top of delivering food to seniors and their pets, Meals on Wheels Atlanta also delivers pet toys and pet beds, and they are happy to take in any pet-related food or items for donation.

The volunteer told 11Alive News in Atlanta that Jeffery and Grizzly “have their own special relationship.” Larry loved Grizzly long before Meals onWheels Atlanta started the pet pantry because he saw howmuch Grizzly’s companionship meant to Jeffery. Now, Larry enjoys his service that much more since he gets to provide for Jeffery’s beloved pet, as well.
