Wellington Seniors Enjoy Drive-Through Lunch Treat

Jim Sackett of the Wellington Community Foundation gives Nancy Koloff lunch and goodie bags.

Approximately 250 members of the Wellington Seniors Club enjoyed a box lunch giveaway with food from TooJay’s on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at Village Park. The Village of Wellington partnered with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, the Wellington Community Foundation and local businesses to make the event a success. In addition to lunch, the Wellington Community Foundation provided an activities bag for seniors to enjoy during their downtime at home. It included either a crossword, sudoku or adult coloring book, pens, a “thinking of you note” that lets seniors know that they are missed throughout the community, as well as an informative foundation brochure including vital information that seniors should know about. It explains how seniors in need can request assistance from “aging in place” projects that the foundation offers, ranging from grab bars and bathroom adaptations to repair and replacement of items in their homes.
