Calvin A. Moore Wins Paragon Award
Calvin is the president and CEO of Meals on Wheels of Metro Tulsa (MOWMT). Through his leadership, MOWMT has continued to serve the most vulnerable in our community by providing caring contact and food security for thousands throughout our area. In addition, Calvin pivoted his organization several times throughout the COVID crisis to meet the needs of our senior citizens.
The delivery model was adapted to reduce the number of face-to-face interactions with vulnerable seniors. This process was implemented within days with no interruption to meal deliveries. During the pandemic, Meals on Wheels of Metro Tulsa delivered more than 300,000 additional meals, distributed more than 17 tons of bulk food, and provided nearly 30,000 snacks and meals to local youth.
His nominator notes, “Calvin Moore is an exemplary servant leader. He leads a well-run, professional organization with 72 staff and thousands of dedicated volunteers, donors and invested community members. Despite the stress and demands of the job, Calvin does so with a smile, reminding all of us of the important work and mission of MOWMT. Calvin continues to be a visionary leader for our Oklahoma community.”
