METROPOLIS, IL (KFVS) -

Happy Hearts Senior Citizen Center, a Meals on Wheels affiliate, will be receiving a new 2013 Dodge Cargo Van delivery vehicle from Caesars Foundation and Harrah's Metropolis.

The new vehicle, which will expand the organization's ability to provide meals to older individuals in the community, will be presented on Thursday, Nov 15 at 11 a.m.

Meals on Wheels currently serves hundreds of older individuals in the greater Metropolis area by delivering 2,000 well-balanced meals each month. The new vehicle will help to deliver more than 360 additional prepared meals annually.

"Senior hunger is one of the most critical issues individuals are facing across the country," said Cynthia Conder of Happy Hearts Senior Citizen Center. "It is inspiring to see a community partner like Caesars Foundation step up in a very tangible way to enhance the quality of life of seniors across the country."

The Metropolis gift is the 48th vehicle the foundation has purchased for Meals on Wheels affiliates across the country.

"The service that Happy Hearts Senior Citizen Center provides to the countless grandparents, friends and neighbors in our community is invaluable and extraordinary," said Mark Osterhaus, General Manager of Harrah's Metropolis. "We are very proud to be a part of the solution to decreasing hunger here in Metropolis."
