Meals on Wheels kicks off 12 Days of Christmas project

Posted: Updated:

Lubbock's elderly who don't get around so well along with those who are disabled are getting a little help to get in the Christmas spirit.

Meals on Wheels kicks off its 12 Days of Christmas with Holiday Glow, delivering hygeine items.

The project goes through the 21st, giving those who might go without something to be happy about this holiday season. 

"Some things are very practical, like today, which was our Holiday Glow Day and it was hygeine items, other days it's popcorn or sweet treats or a soft drink, then there's other things like calendars," Lisa Gilliland said. "There's just a variety of items to look forward to each of the 12 days."

Meal on Wheels still needs some help to get all the items out. For more info on how to volunteer click here:

Through the generosity of numerous local individuals, schools, businesses, and organizations, many of Lubbock’s homebound elderly and disabled will enjoy a festive holiday season. Lubbock Meals on Wheels is, once again, celebrating with the Twelve Days of Christmas Project.
