So great to see our friends from Wendel Rosen LLP yesterday! During the shelter-in-place, they've turned their volunteer focus from in-person meal service to assembling bagged lunches twice each month - and, this month, more than 500 hygiene kits as well. We so appreciate them for continuing find creative ways to support our program participants. Thank you all!
