Making the Holidays Brighter for Seniors

The holidays can be a difficult time for many people, but it can be especially hard for isolated and vulnerable seniors across the County. Meals on Wheels Diablo Region brightened up the holiday for those who are alone with a special holiday meal.

During the holiday week, MOW Diablo Region distributed a meal with all the fixings prepared by Boston Market and made possible through the generous donation of Home Instead and Honor.

“While family and friends will be sharing a meal around the dining room table, there are elders who will be alone,” says Bonnie Paulson, Café Program Specialist.

“The smiles on the faces of our clients when they receive these special meals are like a holiday gift to us and our volunteers. It feels good to know that we can make the holiday better for our senior neighbors.”
