ODESSA - Extra money is coming to help Meals on Wheels in Odessa expand their reach.

Starting August first, they'll be delivering meals in West Odessa.

Margaret Burton, Executive Director for Meals on Wheels, said they received a donation of $75,000 from the Meadows Foundation.

The grant matched donations from the community giving Meals on Wheels around $175,000 to expand their services to West Odessa.

Now, all they need is volunteers to deliver the meals.

"Volunteers are a rare commodity nowadays.  Everyone's working, the boom is great, except on organizations like ours that need volunteers," Burton said.

Burton tells NewsWest 9, about 100 people will benefit from the Meals on Wheels program.
