U.S. Sugar help to make this holiday season a little sweeter

Posted

BELLE GLADE — Due to COVID-19 restrictions and to protect the health and safety of area senior citizens during the pandemic, the annual West County Senior Center Christmas and Hanukkah event has been modified to a drive-thru meal and gift distribution.

Seniors 60 and over will join us for a Senior Citizen Drive-Thru Christmas and Hanukkah celebration. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and to keep our seniors healthy and safe, we are unable to host a sit-down Senior Citizens Holiday Party this year. However, we would still like to offer our seniors a take-out meal and a special gift provided by U.S. Sugar.

“Feeding others and supporting our communities is an important part of what defines the people of U.S. Sugar,” said Brannan Thomas, U.S. Sugar’s Community Relations Manager. “We are pleased to join our Glades community partners to provide food to those in need while also helping to make this holiday season a little sweeter.”

Throughout the pandemic, the people of U.S. Sugar have responded by providing hot meals, fresh produce and essential protective equipment and supplies across South Florida. On Dec. 7, a check in the amount of $750 was presented to West County Senior Center to underwrite food costs for the Christmas and Hanukkah Drive thru Celebration.
