The board of directors of Westlake Meals on Wheels (WMOW) is excited to announce Marie Patten Blatter as the new executive director. As a longtime volunteer, Ms. Patten Blatter continues the tradition of making a positive impact in the community.

“Marie has more energy than the Energizer Bunny and shares our passion for serving our clients,” said George Scherma, chairman of the WMOW board of directors.

Ms. Patten Blatter brings organizational skills, creativity and a willingness to collaborate with the entire Meals on Wheels team. Ms. Patten Blatter’s experience includes management of all aspects of major retail operations, including distribution, human resources and cost-effectiveness. In addition, she retired in 2015 after 17 years with the Cleveland Indians organization.

“I am proud to be associated with a team of caring, dedicated volunteers that are committed to serving our neighbors within our community.”

Westlake Meals on Wheels is an independent, nonprofit charitable corporation which receives no government funding and is entirely community-supported. Our mission is to assist our neighbors in maintaining their independence within the comfort of their own home by delivering nourishing meals and socialization. Our freshly prepared, well-balanced meals are available to those recovering from an illness or surgery, the elderly, or the disabled. Both hot and cold meals are delivered Monday through Friday. Our visits also provide peace of mind to family members, knowing someone checked in on their loved one. Westlake Meals on Wheels serves Westlake North Olmsted, Olmsted Falls and Olmsted Township.

If you have questions, would like to begin our service, or volunteer with Meals on Wheels, please call 440-871-2551.
