Gunnedah Meals on Wheels (MOW) will get a makeover thanks to a $20,000 grant.
Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson announced the funds from the Community Building Partnership Program in Gunnedah on Tuesday.
“This grant will fund the installation of a comprehensive refit of the office facilities at Meals on Wheels,” Mr Anderson said.
“This is fantastic news for an organisation that provides a vital service in the Gunnedah community.
“This grassroots funding will directly help the staff and volunteers provide a first-class service to their clients in Gunnedah.”
The funds will go towards new overhead cabinets, filing cabinets, chairs, workstations, reception counter, meeting room tables, workstation, chair mats and stationary items for the Conadilly Street office. A security system will also be installed.
MOW president Colleen Fuller said the organisation was "very grateful” for the funding and a refurbishment was “well overdue”.
“We mainly want to improve the operation of the office and also improve the look of it,” she said.
New blinds are already being fitted and other improvements are in the works.
“We will implement the changes over the next 12 months,” Mrs Fuller said.
MOW volunteers will be working hard over the Christmas/New Year period, providing meals to Gunnedah’s elderly. The office will still be open during the week.
