Meals on Wheels Collin County Fall Harvest Boxes

Each year, Meals on Wheels Collin County rallies together with the members of our community to share the joys of the season with our senior citizens. The collection of Harvest Boxes is a time honored tradition that is growing in leaps and bounds with each passing year. It is not simply the useful products provided in each box, but the knowledge that they are remembered and are valued, that makes the Harvest Boxes so important to our clients.

But this program only thrives with your help.

Below you will find a grocery list of things we need to fill the Harvest Boxes. Please complete the list and place the items in a copy paper box with lid (or any box sized approximately 17” long, 11” wide, and 10” deep). Decorate the box. The more creative and festive, the better (but, please, no glitter or fancy decorations on lid—the boxes have to be stacked for storage and transportation).
