History of WOW!
Meals On Wheels of Tampa’s High School Leadership Board (HSLB) developed and introduced this program on May 21 2016, to encourage healthy hydration. The student led group, which is comprised of Junior and Senior students from local high schools, raised funds to provide reusable water tumblers and educational materials to all 800+ seniors and homebound served by Meals On Wheels of Tampa.
2016-2017 HSLB President, Maggie Fitzsimmons, was honored to receive the Lightning Community Heroes of Tomorrow award after the introduction of this program.

Thanks to the generosity from the Lightning Foundation and the Lightning Community Heroes program, WOW! transitioned to recipients receiving free water along with their hot meal delivery throughout 2017.
