Who We Are
TLC Meals on Wheels enriches the lives of seniors and others by providing nutritious meals and services that promote dignity, well-being, and independence. We drive away hunger for the home bound of South Metro Denver.
Monday through Friday, volunteers deliver a hot lunch to neighbors in need. Our service supports those whose age or disability makes it difficult to provide their own balanced nutrition. It also helps them stay in the security and comfort of their own home. In short, we address both hunger for food and hunger for personal contact.
Theater Night a Hit!
Our 7th Annual Theater Night Fundraiser was a big success! The near sell-out crowd gathered for a fabulous hors d’oeuvre reception featuring savory and delectable treats from 20 local restaurants and establishments. The outstanding, entertaining performance of 9 to 5: The Musical gave us a flashback to the ‘70’s and how the workplace has changed!
Thank you to our corporate sponsors, food, beverage and raffle donors and community patrons for their support and participation. Please visit them and let them know you appreciate their support of TLC Meals on Wheels.
We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
Phil Says Goodbye, Diane Says Hello!
In January, we said goodbye to our executive director, Phil Miller. He and his wife, Paula, are retiring to their home in Blue Ridge, Georgia. Much has happened since Phil’s arrival in 2008 – a new kitchen and office facilities, a grocery delivery program to go with our five-day a week hot meal delivery, and new partnerships with community and business organizations. “We became a more dynamic and professional organization, since Phil joined us” said board president, David Burcham.
When we asked Phil about his plans, he said “I’m going to put my feet up and rest a bit.” Knowing Phil, it will be a short rest before he finds ways to contribute to his new community. Good luck Phil. We’ll miss you.
With Phil’s departure we say hello and congratulations to longtime friend and now executive director, Diane McClymonds. “We’re thrilled to have Diane step into this position,” said Burcham. “She has worked on our behalf in just about every capacity for us you can imagine.”
Diane has served TLC Meals on Wheels as a volunteer driver, member of its board of directors, board president, and most recently, director of operations. Asked about her devotion to TLC Meals on Wheels, Diane responded, “What could be better than serving an organization that nurtures its clients with hot food and a friendly visit?” And who better to do it than you, Diane!
