A CALL TO HELP: Volunteer for Food & Friends Tomorrow


Dear Readers,

If your office remains closed, or if you've a few free hours in which to help your fellow man, please donate some time in the first half of tomorrow to make deliveries for Food & Friends. The organization serves upwards of 1,400 of the city's hungry and debilitated individuals and has done yeoman's work in this year's snow—at least according to Communications Director Lisa Bandera, who notes in an email that "not one of Food & Friends' clients struggling with debilitating illness has missed his/her meals, so far, due to the winter storm."

So, let's make sure the streak continues. F&F is looking for 11 volunteers at 10 a.m. tomorrow and 33 volunteers for the noon shift. Learn more, and sign up for a shift, at Food & Friends' Web site.

If you've got a four-wheel-drive vehicle, this is your chance to make it count.

Food & Friends is located at 219 Riggs Road NE.  For more information, call 202.841.5347.

    Hi Ted,

    All of us at Food & Friends say Big Thanks for this.We do need delivery volunteers tomorrow. It's always tough to be sick and especially so when the air is as cold as a blade and clients are especially isolated.

    Thanks to all.
