Belle Tower residents receive special meals and much-needed supplies during the pandemic

Council on Aging (COA) is lucky enough to be able to take care of area seniors – especially when they need a little extra help because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Through partnerships with area organizations, we delivered personal supplies and needed food to our community’s older adults.

Through a partnership with LaRosa’s Pizzerias, area seniors in all parts of southwestern Ohio are receiving a welcome change of pace to their daily meal. One such delivery was to the residents of Hamilton’s Belle Tower Apartments on April 17.   

Surprising the residents, COA worked with Central Connections to deliver approximately 125 LaRosa’s famous recipe spaghetti dinners that brought smiles to the residents’ faces. COA also delivered boxes of personal care supplies for each resident.

Lisa Bendescu is the building manager at Belle Tower and said that “most [residents] are scared because of COVID-19. This was a wonderful treat for them, and I heard many of them say that they will visit LaRosa’s more often when they can get out.”

Cheryl, Belle Tower resident, was especially grateful. “It was a very wonderful thing you did…It’s nice to have something from the outside since we can’t go out.”   

 

Similar deliveries occurred at Sherman Manor the same day.
