Meals on Wheels depends on the generosity of community spirit at individual and corporate level to keep going and growing. Without the generosity of sponsors and other financial supporters, Meals on Wheels could not meet the diverse needs of so many in our community. Leaving a Gift in your Will, or a Bequest is a tangible way of assisting with the continuance of Meals on Wheels NSW in to the future.
