SAN DIEGO -- The Thursday Club Juniors gave Special Delivery San Diego, a nonprofit that has prepared and served meals to over 4,500 individuals with HIV, AIDS, cancer, heart disease or other life-threatening illnesses since its inception in 1991, a grant for $57,000.

Founder and Executive Director Ruth Henricks said the organization was “very pleased and honored” for the recognition.

“We are thrilled to receive this very generous award from such a wonderful local organization,” Henricks said in the announcement. “This contribution will be used to help us continue our work of delivering nutritious meals to over 250 unduplicated men, women and children.”

Special Delivery clients typically receive two cold and one hot meal daily, groceries and the ability to shop in the organization’s food pantry, representatives said. Special Delivery is located in Mission Hills at 4021 Goldfinch St., and Henricks said the grant would also help them to stock the pantry with “many much-needed, nutrient-sense super foods.”
