DETROIT (AP) -- About 6,000 Thanksgiving dinners will be delivered to homebound senior citizens in the Detroit area.

The Detroit Area Agency on Aging says 400 volunteers from the Ford Motor Co. Fund and 800 others from the community are taking part Thursday in the Holiday Meals on Wheels program.

The Ford Motor Co. Fund also is making a $30,000 donation. This is the sixth year the fund is supporting the Holiday Meals on Wheels program.

Meals will be prepared Thursday morning and include turkey breast, dressing, mashed potatoes and apple pie.

The Detroit Area Agency on Aging is a private, nonprofit that serves people 60 years and older, adults with disabilities and caregivers.
