 The Atlanta Falcons visited MOWA this month as a part of their Hometown Huddle service initiative. They delivered meals, signed autographs and played games with our seniors, who were ecstatic to meet them. We are so lucky to participate in this event with the Falcons, and we hope to be chosen again soon!

One of our favorite yearly celebrations is Oktoberfest with the senior centers. This year, eight different centers gathered at New Horizons for food, fun, and health education. The ever impressive Beulah Boys danced and spoke about the importance of regular medical exams and physicals, while vendors from all over Atlanta provided information about healthcare and safety. We would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to put this event together to keep our seniors informed while having a great time!

Carrie McCoy volunteers with MOWA three days a week because she genuinely loves the clients. In fact, the one word she would use to describe herself is 'love'. For two years she has served meals, assisted with daily activities and provided companionship to the seniors at New Horizons Senior Center. Whether she's at New Horizons or out in the community, she enjoys meeting new people and building new friendships. In addition to connecting with people, she loves gospel music, R&B, and Bible study. Atlanta has been her home for 45 years, and she likes it just the way it is, though she hopes that as a community we continue to keep the children engaged and positive.

 

We have so many ways to get involved with us during the holidays! We are collecting canned food for our emergency pantry and holiday gifts for our seniors, and we have volunteer opportunities on Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. For dates and details please click here. We are looking forward to another amazing holiday season here at MOWA!
