Happy Thanksgiving!

Along with two other volunteers, I was assigned to deliver 7 set of packages.  I encountered elders who had to have a caregiver answer the doors to a wheelchair lady who could not even use her own bathroom because her vehicle could not fit through the bathroom door.  These people have to depend on others assistance and they were all extremely grateful for our deliveries.

It felt nice and fuzzy to be able to help others, especially since we have the power to do so.  With just a little effort, we can all make a difference.
