More than four months ago, the Needham Council on Aging, often referred to as the Center at the Heights, closed its doors to the public and began operating remotely in response to COVID-19. While we miss hearing the whirr of machines in the fitness room, laughter and delicious smells coming out of our Café and the sound of cards flying across the table, we are committed to practicing social distancing and keeping older adults in Needham safe.
There are so many community partners who have supported us during this time, and we are grateful for their partnerships. We want to especially thank our friends at Trader Joe’s Needham. We didn’t have to spend long pondering how we would get groceries to older adults in Needham when the Trader Joe’s Team jumped right in and offered to assemble weekly bags filled with eggs, milk, and other staple items that we have been able to deliver out in the community. Trader Joe’s Team Members have enthusiastically packed over 700 bags of groceries for our residents, helping to keep seniors safe in these times. We are so grateful to work with them and for their commitment to serving this community.
Your friends at the Center at the Heights in Needham
