Danville Emeritus Delivering Meals as Part of National 10,000 Meals in 60 Days Emeritus Campaign


Danville, VA - The senior assisted living company, Emeritus, wants to deliver 10,000 meals to the elderly across the country.

They are doing it in celebration of National Food  Month. But they plan to meet their goal in 60 days. 

They have 500 branches helping to reach that goal, including their Danville facility. Danville Emeritus said so far they've delivered a dozen meals, but will really kick off their deliveries this Friday.

They said a friendly face and a nutritious meal at a doorstep can go a long way.

"A lot of times, these folks, because of the illness or an injury, they're home and they're by themselves and isolation becomes a big issue for them and this is just a great way for us to show up," said Gordon Martel, Community Relations Director for Danville Emeritus.

So far, in the Northeast over 2,000 meals have been delivered.
