Little Brothers’ Thanksgiving Dinners to Be Delivered

One of the Copper Country’s most treasured Thanksgiving traditions will continue this year, despite challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic…

“We’ve had overwhelming response from our elderly friends that they want the meals, and this is such an important time for them.”

Cathy Kass-Aten from Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly says they won’t be able to operate their in-person, sit-down dinners this year. So, all of their traditional turkey dinners will be hand-delivered to seniors…

“I think we have a really great safety plan in place, to ensure that we are doing this as safely as possible, given the pandemic.”

Little Brothers has always delivered some meals to homebound seniors, which frequently involve an extended visit…

“Obviously, with the pandemic, our volunteers cannot do in-home visits, but we’re still bringing the meal, and still giving the opportunity for people to say ‘hi,’ and really celebrate the day.”

If you are at least 60 years old, and need a meal delivered, call Little Brothers at 482-6944.

Volunteers are needed to help with meal delivery, preparation and other logistical concerns. Financial donations are also needed. Call the Little Brothers office, or visit their website to sign up or contribute.
