(PRESS RELEASE)_Boca Raton, FL (April 1, 2020) –Today, The Addison in Boca Raton announced that it has begun to donate 700 meals per week to Boca Helping Hands (BHH) to aid in its efforts to feed the homebound and other BHH clients most in need of help. Drivers will deliver to 30 homebound clients three times a week, enabling those clients to have hot cooked meals every day. The remaining meals will be provided to the non-profit’s clients who walk up to Boca Helping Hands to receive a hot meal.
“Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, we have been preparing 170 packaged hot meals for pick-up each day. The need has grown in recent days with over 250 now seeking lunch each day. The Addison’s help will go a long way to help the homebound and others who are most in need, but will also help us use our resources to meet the growing needs we are experiencing during this crisis,” said Greg Hazle, Executive Director of Boca Helping Hands. “This is an incredible offer from a wonderful partner, whose help will be particularly meaningful over the difficult few months ahead.”
For more information or to donate or volunteer to distribute meals, please contact Karen Swedenborg at 561-417-0913, ext. 202 or visit bocahelpinghands.org.
