Conroe Location Changes
Happy New Year Friends!!
I hope this finds you well and warm as our new year starts off with very un-Texas-like freezing temperatures! We had a busy end of the year delivering meals, blankets and gifts to our precious clients. There are not enough words of gratitude to express how thankful we are for every single volunteer, who walks through our doors…we could not fulfill this mission without you!
I want to update everyone on a change at our Conroe location. About a month ago, the City of Conroe maintenance department conducted a “Post-Harvey” inspection of the building. It was determined that because of the age of the HVAC systems in conjunction with several leaks, our building needs to undergo repairs. Because we do not know the extent of the repairs nor the timeframe, we decided to make the pro-active decision to temporarily relocate while the City determines their next steps.
Woodforest National Bank has very generously offered us office space at their Conroe branch only a couple of blocks from where we were located. We have a separate entrance so staff can come and go without disrupting the bank operations. We are beyond grateful for this gift and happy to stay in the heart of the city!
As far as cooler pick-up and drop-off for Conroe volunteers, we are still finalizing plans. The goal is to keep everything as close as possible to our “old” office. The building located in front of the “old” building is vacant most of the year and the City is working to relocate the senior activity center there for ease of transportation. Once that is confirmed, then the pick-up location will remain in the same parking lot with only a slight change on how meals are transported (because there will not be staff on site to retrieve coolers at the end of the day). A separate notice will go out to those volunteers detailing the new process.
We are so grateful for every hand that makes serving our seniors possible. Our clients often share their own stories of gratitude for Meals on Wheels, and we know this is because of our community and you. On behalf of them and us, thank you.
Warm wishes and blessings for the New Year,
