Swag Bags for Meals on Wheels Senior Clients Aimed at Brightening Days



DALLAS, TX – The month of April is designated as National Volunteer Month, and it brings something good for folks who could use it.

Hand-decorated swag bags are now brightening up the homes of clients of the Visiting Nurse Association Meals on Wheels program.

Employees of Tenet Healthcare in Dallas and their families hand-decorated then donated almost 400 senior swag bags to VNA.

Wake Up to Something Good

Every morning, NBC 5 Today is dedicated to delivering you positive local stories of people doing good, giving back and making a real change in our community.

Each bag was filled with notes, activities and goodies for seniors to enjoy.

VNA Meals on Wheels provides hot meals twice a week to about 4,400 clients, and since last week, the swag bags have been included in the meal drop-offs.

“As our community continues to tackle staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, the goal of these bags is to help offset some of social isolation that has increased this past year,” Katelyn Sim with Tenet Healthcare tells NBC 5 in an email.
