We went and did our first delivery for friendship trays today. Just a little reminder - Friendship Trays (http://www.friendshiptrays.org/) is a local Meal on Wheels. They deliver more than 600 meals daily to elderly, handicapped, and convalescing people who are unable or greatly restricted in their ability to prepare or secure meals.
We went to the Levine Senior Center to pick up the food then went on our route. We delivered meals to 10 people. It was a great experience for the kids. They loved helping out and putting a smile on peoples faces when they went up to their doors to deliver the food and drinks. We met all sorts of people. Some are elderly and can't leave their homes, one gentle man was injured at work and now has really bad back problems and is recovering from surgery. One man has been living with aids for 15 years and also has cancer. We said prayers for them as needed and are looking forward to seeing them again in two weeks. This is a great lesson for myself and the kids in serving others and being good Samaritan's. We are glad to be a part of this great service project.
We went a had free lunches at Bob Evans after our route was completed.
