HANCOCK — Seniors throughout the Copper Country who would otherwise be spending this Easter alone won’t have to thanks to Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly.
Once again, Little Brothers will be serving free Easter Dinners for friends sixty and over at several different locations.
In the final days, Little Brothers found themselves in need of two hundred and fifty pounds of ham plus desserts, coleslaw, pineapple slices, ginger ale and butter.
And the community came through and donated all of the items they needed.
“I was just absolutely pleased that there were just a few little tiny things that we had to purchase in order to put this all together but we’ve had donations of ham, of canned goods, desserts—all those sorts of things,” said Little Brothers Elder Services Coordinator Julie Beck. “It’s just been wonderful and an outpouring from the community that I never expected to be so generous.”
For homebound seniors, meals will be delivered to their door starting at noon Sunday. And for those coming out for Easter, dinner is at 2:00 p.m.
