Volunteers needed for Thanksgiving

ElderFriends, a group of Seattle volunteers, needs people to help deliver Thanksgiving meals and spend an hour visiting with one senior who would otherwise be alone on Thanksgiving Day from 9:30 a.m. - noon.
   Volunteers will meet on Thursday, Nov. 23, at the Yankee Grill in Ballard at 9:30 a.m., where they will be given an orientation; pick up their Elders information, including address and directions to their home; pick up all of the Thanksgiving goodies and drive to the senior's home with their delivery and spend about an hour visiting with them.
   Deliveries will include: A full-course turkey dinner, colorful place mats made by children, Dilettante Chocolates and flowers.
   To volunteer, call (206) 224-3793.
