Feature Fort Worth: Good People Doing Good Things in the Fort Worth AreaSubmitted by WWK Wealth Advisors on May 16th, 2013
Our first subject was Communities in Schools (video). Mike Steele and Peyton Salvarria were excited to help get the series off the ground and very understanding with the hiccups that come with being first.

This months’ episode features Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County. Denise Harris was kind enough to shoot the interview twice and share the Meals on Wheels story, which is incredible. For me, the big insight was how delivering meals really builds a sense of community and connection between the volunteer and recipient. All for volunteering one hour per week. WWK Advisor Bill Fairley has delivered meals weekly for over eighteen years and can attest to the difference it makes. Here is this months’ episode.
