Each bag was filled with notes, activities and goodies for seniors to enjoy.
VNA Meals on Wheels provides hot meals twice a week to about 4,400 clients, and since last week, the swag bags have been included in the meal drop-offs.
"As our community continues to tackle staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, the goal of these bags is to help offset some of social isolation that has increased this past year," Katelyn Sim with Tenet Healthcare tells NBC 5 in an email.
