Delivering hot meals to the homebound.

Meals on Wheels People will deliver more than 1,000 hot turkey dinners to homebound seniors on Thanksgiving Day. The organization will also host community Thanksgiving Dinners at several locations in the Portland metro area.

“A traditional holiday meal with turkey and all the trimmings will be delivered by volunteers to our most frail and isolated seniors on Thanksgiving Day,” said Meals on Wheels People Executive Director Suzanne Washington. “We are so grateful for the community volunteers who spend part of their holiday making the day brighter for these seniors.”
