Because of COVID-19 the annual Holiday Dinner for Seniors put on by the Everett Police Officers Association was unable to be held this year. That didn’t stop members of the EPOA and their families from finding a way to bring Holiday joy to 100 folks yesterday.

Funds raised by members of the Everett Police Officers Association and their families that normally would have been used to purchase ingredients for meals served at the Senior Center dinner instead were used to purchase more than 100 individual dinners from the Vintage Cafe on Hewitt Avenue in downtown Everett.

Jim Staniford, owner of the Vintage, put the meals together (a turkey dinner with all the fixings as well as pumpkin pie for dessert). Each meal was prepped so seniors could easily heat in a microwave or oven.

Everett Police officers and their family members then sorted and delivered the individual meals to seniors throughout Everett on Christmas Eve.

“While we wished we could have done the traditional dinner we wanted to make sure our Seniors know how valued they are,” Sergeant Craig Davis told MyEverettNews.com. “Officers and their families look forward to this event every year.”
