AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott and First Lady Cecilia Abbott today delivered Thanksgiving meals to those in need with Meals On Wheels in Austin.

Following their visit to several homes in the Austin area with Meals on Wheels, the Governor and First Lady visited and delivered meals to the temporary camping space for people experiencing homelessness in Austin.

“I am grateful to see so many Texans helping those in need celebrate on this day of thanks,” said Governor Abbott. “The selflessness of these volunteers does not go unnoticed and serves as a testament to the Texas spirit. Cecilia and I wish everyone across the Lone Star State a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving.”
