COVID-19 Operations: Meals on Wheels of Metro Tulsa continues to deliver more than a meal to homebound seniors in Tulsa county. During this time, volunteers play an important role by assisting with wellness checks from the comfort and safety of home.
We also have additional opportunities for assisting our relief delivery operations and the PAWS Program.
