Downtown Law Firm Delivers

If you work in downtown San Antonio, fighting both traffic and parking can quickly become a nightmare. This daily challenge can discourage most professionals from volunteering, as they don't want to sacrifice hours in the commute and away from their families. Thankfully, Meals on Wheels provides lunch hour volunteer opportunities for local businesses operating out of downtown SA!

Our most recent volunteer partner is Cox Smith, the prestigious law firm operating out of the Weston Centre. Each day, a Meals on Wheels staff driver delivers the day's meals "curbside" to the Weston Centre. Then employees of Cox Smith donate their lunch hour to deliver meals to 11 homebound seniors living near downtown. "Seeing smiles on their faces is the most wonderful feeling that anyone can experience," said Lisa Rivas-Moore. Another Cox Smith employee [Michelle Burleson] added, "Being a Meals on Wheels volunteer has been so rewarding in that I am able to impact the lives of seniors by delivering a meal to them... a gesture that might seem small in nature, but is so significant in meaning."

Meals on Wheels truly appreciates Cox Smith for their dedication to feeding homebound seniors; however, Meals on Wheels still seeks additional downtown partnerships to help deliver meals nearby. If your company would like to learn more about becoming a meal delivery partner, please contact Volunteer Services at (210) 735-5115.
