Five local nonprofit agencies and 200 local volunteers will distribute holiday fruit baskets to about 900 low-income homebound seniors in Boulder County from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8. This event has happened annually for 25 years, but this year it’s especially important as the weak economy is keeping many seniors from being able to afford fresh fruit, or from being able to travel to see family for the holidays. Distribution points will be First Evangelical Lutheran Church, 803 Third Ave., Longmont, and the Boulder Senior Center West, 909 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder. Many seniors receiving the baskets will be at Golden West, 1055 Adams Circle Boulder; Presbyterian Manor, 1050 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder; and various Boulder Housing Partners sites.
