Darden Restaurants Foundation Inc. has bestowed a $2,000 grant as part of the Restaurant Community Grants program to the Gainesville-Hall County Community Council on Aging, which helps raise funds for Meals on Wheels.
The grants program empowers each restaurant in the Darden family of brands to help award a $1,000 grant to support local community programs. The donation will help reduce the number of seniors on the Meals on Wheels waiting list.
CCOA Board Chairwoman Carol Williams is thrilled to receive support from Darden.
“We have been tackling the Meals on Wheels waiting list for three years now,” she said. “The support from Darden brings us that much closer to reaching our goal of eliminating the waiting list completely.”
