TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Elder Care Services, Inc. (ECS) brought together local celebrities from the community Tuesday to deliver hot meals to seniors in the area.
The "Big Wheels Deliver Meals" program included special deliveries from Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, FAMU President Dr. Elmira Mangum, the Tallahassee Police Chief, city and county commissioners and many more.
It was all to show the importance of the Meals on Wheels program and the impact it has on those who receive the meals.
"We have lots of food insecurity issues and lots of seniors that are on very limited incomes, so this is just another way to highlight how important the program is," explains ECS CEO Mark Baldino.
WTXL ABC 27's Abbey Maurer and Casanova Nurse also participated in the event.
Each year, over 5,000 seniors and their families receive help from Elder Care Services.
