Harrah's gives van to Meals on Wheels

In a presentation on Sept. 30, Harrah’s North Kansas City and its parent company, Caesars Foundation, presented a van to Don Bosco Senior Center to be used by its Meals on Wheels program.

After hearing that two vans were stolen from the senior center last summer, General Manager of Harrah’s North Kansas City Tom Cook and the casino’s HERO (Harrah’s Employees Reaching Out) program decided to help.

Our Area Agency on Aging can help you identify which benchmark plan is best for you. Call 816-421-4980 for more information. Have a list of your prescriptions ready when you make the call.
