To help serve clients during the COVID-19 crisis, Tulsa Transit will partner with Meals on Wheels to deliver food.
Meals on Wheels of Metro Tulsa has provided support for seniors to enhance their independence and health in the area for over 50 years. The organization thrives on the generosity of donors as well as community partner support.
Tulsa Transit’s Lift service operators, First Transit, will be transitioning multiple paratransit vehicles to operate as a delivery service for Meals on Wheels. Drivers will be running four-hour shifts Monday through Friday based on a schedule provided by the organization.
“First Transit is excited to partner with Meals on Wheels and assist with the amazing service they provide each day,” said Scott Marr, First Transit GM.
Tara Harris, Director of Volunteer Service for Meals on Wheels, gave First Transit management staff a tour of the facilities before the kick-off and explained how the two organizations would work together to provide the service.
