The Spaghetti luncheon was a huge success thanks to all of you ,Mary Basilico and
Renaldo the owner of Villa Romano. Mary worked so hard to put things together.All
the money collected stayed with Help 4 Kids. He donated everything.
Whether you worked or came to have lunch you made it possible for us
to feed our children 4000 meals. I can;t thank all of you personally
but please know how grateful I am.
The Rotary club from Little River surprised me with a $3000 check
and a beautiful pot of flowers.
They have long been supporters of our work and are so appreciated.
That check will provide 2500 food packs .
Metglas who is so good to us with grants and volunteers ordered 67 meals to go.
They always join in in helping feed the kids whatever our project is.
I hope they enjoyed the meals.
Enterprise Car brought a crew and did a wonderful job.
All of the workers were fabulous. Seemed like we had professionals serving
busing, hosting, and doing tickets.
The kitchen crew of Daryl, Trisha , Lucille, Cindy and Maria did a wonderful job under pressure.
Every food pack you make possible is a food pack I don’t have to worry about buying.
The staff of Villa Romana said Help 4 Kids has the best volunteers of
any they have ever seen. I of course already knew that.
When we assigned jobs I volunteered to do the dishes. How hard can it be to turn
on the machine I said.
I was totally out of my element. The dishes and pots and pans came faster than
I could turn on the machine.
My hero of Friday is Mr. Ray DeSilva who saw me in distress
and came to my aid.He was joined by Elizabeth from Metglas
and helped me get caught up and stayed until the finish.
Covered in red saucefrom head to toe I decided
I have a lot of respect for dishwashers everywhere.
They have the hardest job in the restaurant.
If I missed thanking anyone it was because I was in the kitchen and did not know you were there so let me know.
We are covered for February and March for food. We still need to get through April , May and 1 week in June.
That will be 18,000 food packs. Please still encourage people to donate a box of Ramen , Applesauce, Pudding,
Juice, Pop Tarts or Peanut Butter. We can’t have a fundraiser often but with donations
of food we can meet our goals. Children will eat and we can know we did the best we could to help them.
Again Thank You and congratulations on being named the best VOLUNTEERS of all.
