March for Meals 2018

Detours, Road construction, RAIN …

And lots and lots of SMILES!

One of the largest turn-outs in recent history! We all crowded in to the extra space at the pickup location for our gathering time before heading out into the blast!

Thank you to the several dozen Community Leaders who joined our ‘seasoned volunteers’ yesterday, braving the elements and … other forces(!) … to deliver meals on schedule to our neighbors in need!

This is one of our favorite days of the year – when we get to share what we do every day with others, so they can enjoy it, too!
