Hilltop Community Resources expects to prepare and deliver nearly 700 free meals on Christmas Eve to Grand Valley seniors homebound for the holidays.
The latest number is about double the 350 meals usually delivered through the program. For seven years, Hilltop has provided holiday dinners to clients of Meals on Wheels, a St. Mary’s Medical Center program that delivers meals to area seniors.
The meals, prepared by the kitchens of Hilltop, will include turkey with traditional side dishes and a special desert. A total of more than 175 Hilltop staff members and community volunteers will deliver the meals between 1 and 5 p.m. Precautions will be taken in preparing and delivering the meals to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
