This Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend of Service, our volunteer team in Anne Arundel fanned out across the region to give back to our community. Partnering with the our local supermarkets to collect food to benefit the USO and veteran’s families, our volunteers were pleasantly surprised by the community reaction. Within a couple of hours, we had collected several moving trucks’ worth of food!
The USO office in St. Meade happened to be closed over the weekend, so we ended up re-routing all the food to my house! Pictured: Dennie’s grandson Chase, helping us sort the bags of food collected in her living room this weekend!
By the time Monday rolled around, we made sure all the goods had been delivered to the USO, only to see shocked and excited faces!
It was such a great weekend giving back to our community, and seeing our work having such a positive impact! Join us next Tuesday across the county as we meet up to watch the President’s State of the Union speech!
