This holiday season, the Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly (LBFE) program will be helping the elderly throughout the tri-state.

LBFE will be making visits to 500 elderly homes, apartments and nursing homes to deliver a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, homemeade muffins and pumpkin pie. 

45 elderly individuals residing in nursing homes will be receiving a gift basket with an assortment of food times, lotion, stuffed animals, plants and more.
