The Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association is helping organize a group of community volunteers to cook and serve food for about 250 people every month! Please email Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
Thanksgiving dinner was a smashing success. Thank you so much to everyone who donated, peeled, chopped, cooked, and served! A special thanks to Warn Industries for a generous donation to cover ingredients for our Thanksgiving Feast. We served up a delicious feast to residents at both Laurelwood Center and Lilac Meadows – over 250 neighbors!
Our next scheduled meal is Christmas Day, Wednesday 25-December. The Foster-Powell Run Club will be cooking and the volunteer duties are fully staffed. Please stay tuned for more information about our events in January and beyond!
