Meet the Monday night all-stars, our October volunteers of the month!
This is a group of people who have been volunteering at the Meal Center on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month.
Pictured are Irene (20 year volunteer), Lynne (15 years), Andrea (7 years) and team leader, Sally (13 years). The team also includes Cathy, Doug, Christine and Bob.
These volunteers did not know each other before they started volunteering. They have become friends and bonded in their shared enjoyment and dedication to preparing and serving the Monday night meals. In non-COVID times they meet outside the Meal Center at Christmas and for a picnic in the summer. During the current COVID times, their work at the Meal Center serves as a social outlet and a rewarding experience in giving back to the community. The team is a fun-loving group that is committed to the patrons of the Meal Center.
Thank you Monday night all-stars for your caring and commitment to the hungry people of the New London area.
