MCJC members prepared and served PADS dinners for the homeless at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Woodstock on February 27 and March 27. We fed twenty-three PADS guests and eight overnight PADS volunteers on February 27 and twenty-eight PADS guests and six overnight PADS volunteers on March 27.
The meals were delicious, and it was a joy for the MCJC meal servers to see how much the PADS guests and volunteers enjoyed and appreciated them.
Special thanks go to the following individuals for providing food for the February and March dinners: Gene Lindow, Leslie Cook, Briana & Elsie Salgado, Esther Kaplan, Ellen Morton, Iza Celewicz, Kim Solomon Dooley, and Marian and Bruce Weiss.
Special thanks also go out to the following individuals for helping to serve the February and March dinners: Linda and Jerry Trachsler, Iza Celewicz, Briana and Elsie Salgado, Kim and Logan Solomon Dooley, and Bruce Weiss.
