Foundation grant helps to serve hot lunches for seniors

The Hudson’s Hope Healthcare and Housing Society recently received a $2,600 grant from the Northeast Regional Community Foundation toward its Tuesday Lunches program at Silver Willow Court.

Every Tuesday a dedicated group of volunteers cook a hot meal for seniors residing at Silver Willow Court and those in the community of Hudson’s Hope. Local school children volunteer to serve each week.

On Oct. 8, a special turkey lunch was served with the help of Hadley Gilliss (Grade 6) and Logan Koehn-King (Grade 5), along with a presentation of the cheque by Sue Kenny of the Northeast Regional Community Foundation to the board of Hudson’s Hope Healthcare & Housing Society.
