Moveable Feast really went all out this year for the holidays!
Executive Chef Damon Hersh and kitchen staff prepared delicious Christmas dinners for our clients. They were delivered this morning by Beth El Congregation volunteers.
Over the past few weeks, we've also been collecting toys for our children on service. Donated toys have streamed in from all sources, ranging from a drive held by Meadowbrook Swim Club...to a drive coordinated by Glenda Rider in honor of former Moveable Feast Exec. Director Myers...to a drive organized by Wayne Jenkins and other members of the Greater Baltimore Church of Christ...to individual toy donations by our supporters and volunteers.Volunteers have also been creating holiday decorations, wrapping presents, decorating food delivery bags, and writing cards. The efforts of more than a hundred volunteers have helped to make this holiday season very successful for Moveable Feast.
Some of the most notable donated toys included:
- Michael Phelps's book, "How To Train with a T. Rex and Win 8 Gold Medals"
