Meals on Wheels accepts donations for heater drive

Meals on Wheels Waco is hosting a heater drive to help people 60 or older who can't afford it during the winter months.

Laura Ziemer is the Director of Client Services for Meals on Wheels Waco. She said they only have five heaters left from last winter and they've already had a few people call in for one.

"We're going to continue to get calls from folks and we really want to get heaters as soon as we can distribute them to our seniors who need to stay warm," Ziemer said.

One heater can be purchased with a $20 donation but contributions of any amount are welcome. Ziemer hopes they can raise enough money to purchase 300 heaters.

Heaters will be distributed through agencies such as Heart of Texas Aging and Disability Resource Center, Meals on Wheels Waco, Friends for Life, Caritas and Heart of Texas 211.

You can make checks payable to Meals on Wheels Waco and indicate "Heater Project" in the memo line.

Send to P.O. BOX 85, Waco, Texas 76703.
