Harrah's Entertainment, a national sponsor of the Meals on Wheels Association of America's "March for Meals" campaign, will donate a new Dodge Dakota truck to Atlantic County at a ceremony on Thursday, November 21 at 10 AM at the Ventnor Senior Center, 6500 Atlantic Avenue. The truck will be used by the county's home delivered meal program.
In joint venture with Nascar driver Larry Foyt, the Meals on Wheels Association is donating 26 vehicles throughout the country. Atlantic County is the only organization in New Jersey to receive a vehicle.
Atlantic County delivers 350 meals each day to frail individuals sixty years of age or older who are unable to leave the confines of home and cannot prepare their own meals.
