Staff at Center for Hispanic Elderly are working tirelessly to care for their residents during COVID-19. Let's give back and help fuel them with meals at this critical time. This is also a chance to support our local restaurants and delivery drivers. PLEASE STAY HOME AND HEALTHY, no personal deliveries or home-cooked meals, please.

In your claimed spot, please specify where the delivery will be from and a brief description of what is ordered. Make sure to indicate to the restaurant or delivery service that delivery must be made directly to the front entrance at the chosen time, a greeter will come out and get the food.
