She also states, “We have been overwhelmed by the community support and enthusiasm for this wonderful event.  With just over 3 months before the event, ticket sales and sponsorships are almost sold out!  We want to thank everyone for your continued support of our mission, to keep the elderly and disabled citizens of Rockwall County living in their homes as long as safely possible through nutritious meals, supportive services and daily human contact.”

“MOWSS will provide over 65,000 meals to more than 550 seniors and disabled citizens in Rockwall County in 2019 alone,” states Margie Verhagen, Executive Director, MOWSS.  “Projected numbers suggest that Rockwall County will be home to 22,000 plus seniors by 2020.” Ms. Verhagen added.
