For 15 years, low-income seniors have been attending a Thanksgiving meal at Ward Villas. Organizers try to make the atmosphere 5-star to allow the seniors, who don't have much money, to treat a friend or family member to a lavish meal. The day also includes deliveries of meals to area senior citizens. Lillian Mobley is comforted as she wipes a tear from her eyes as she receives a meal at her Los Angeles home.
