DoubleTree by Hilton Oklahoma City Airport Partners with NewView Oklahoma to Serves Meals To Visually-Impaired Veterans
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - DoubleTree by Hilton Oklahoma City Airport was proud to partner with NewView Oklahoma, a private organization that aims to assist, support and employ blind or visually-impaired citizens, to sponsor their complimentary monthly luncheon, called VITAL, where veterans dine together and hear a speaker.
"The veterans and military men and women I know love a good, hearty meal. On my tour in Iraq, I craved good meatloaf and greens, you know, really hearty food," said veteran of the Marine Corps Shaun Elliott, PM chef, DoubleTree by Hilton Oklahoma City Airport.
On January 17, Shaun arrived early to the kitchen to start preparations for the day. Assisted by Kitchen Manager Aaron Deal and Chef Hilary Hinds, the team prepped a deliciously fragrant meal of meatloaf, green beans, and rolls that had the whole hotel drooling! The food was then transported to the luncheon by several staff members who stayed to serve the veterans and dine with them.
Once the team arrived, they prepped plates for the veterans alongside the staff of NewView Oklahoma. The event was a huge success, with 30 veterans, attendees, their caretakers and companions (including some furry four-legged ones!) for a tasty hour of good food and company.
"I wanted to thank you so much for arranging to serve our veterans this week. The food was delicious!! A lot of veterans said it was the best meatloaf they've had! Thank you to the volunteers who prepared the meal and those who came out to serve. We all greatly appreciate it," said Cynthia Vora, Program Director of NewView Oklahoma.
