Looking for something meaningful to do with your family? Join Mishpacha & Me, Mishpacha NEXT, and Meals on Wheels for Mitzvah Week!

Meals on Wheels needs help delivering shelf-stable food boxes to homebound seniors in preparation for hurricane season. Families can each expect to deliver to three seniors in local neighborhoods. Deliveries will take 30 minutes to 1 hour total.

The meeting point will be at the J and instructions will be given onsite. You will need a GPS to map between delivery locations and the driver should be at least 18 years of age. If you have any questions, please contact Kari Stein 832.408.3532 or We appreciate your help!
