Home-bound seniors not left out of Thanksgiving festivities

For many home-bound seniors the holidays can be a lonely time, especially if friends or family live far away.

Fortunately, the Millionair Club Charity’s Meals Program, in partnership with Full Life Care, has made sure 60 seniors are provided with a hot and delicious Thanksgiving meal this year to make the holiday season more cheerful.

Since 2006 we’ve helped deliver these meals in conjunction with Full Life Care’s ElderFriends program, which partners volunteers with seniors seeking companionship.

On Thanksgiving morning volunteers from Full Life Care come to the Millionair Club Charity and box up a scrumptious meal with all the fixings: turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, vegetables and dessert.

“Full Life Care is tremendously fortunate to partner with the Millionair Club for Thanksgiving all these years,” says Ginger Seybold, Director of Volunteer Programs at Full Life Care. “Our elder participants really appreciate having a special visitor on the holiday and they look forward to the tasty, nutritious meals prepared by your chefs.”

The meals are delivered on Thanksgiving morning to seniors living within the Seattle area. Seniors also receive along with their meals flowers from Ballard Blossom and placemats made by schoolchildren at Bertschi School.
