WESTBROOK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The Westbrook Meals on Wheels program helps provide hot meals to those in the community who need it all year. On Christmas, it is more than just a hot meal on a platter for those who would otherwise be alone. Volunteers work to bring joy to 200 local residents.
Fernando Ventresco received one of the meals Thursday morning, "I knew somebody was coming, but I didn't realize I would get a big reception like that. I appreciate it. It means a lot to me because I don't speak to anybody all day long."
Fernando opened the door to longtime volunteer Philip Rhinelander who was decked out in his finest Santa costume.
