Members Volunteer in the Community

Heather Laughman and Mary Parsons 

Operation New Start co-chairs Heather Laughman and Mary Parsons assisted one of our collaborators by volunteering at the HCS Family Services Mobile Food Pantry in Willowbrook this September.

Mary reports:
The Mobile Food Pantry is a free distribution of approximately 10,000 pounds of fresh produce, meat, bread and non-perishable food items to low-income families. Some of these families may have been recipients of an Operation New Start kitchen as HCS Family Services is one of the agencies that we have a contract with. It was a very well organized operation with a lot of volunteers. Food was distributed to about 150 families. The mobile pantry visits Willowbrook every month, whatever the weather.

Thanks for Heather and Mary for being a visible ALCW presence in our community.
