The Big Event, a national day of volunteering, was indeed a very BIG successful day for Nutrition and Services for Seniors. On an absolutely exquisite Saturday morning we were thrilled to have seven dedicated Lamar University students and Lamar Professor Dr. Margot Gage along with her two adorable daughters walk through our door with their energy, big smiles and dedication to service. Within a brief two hour period, this extraordinary team assembled over 1,200 shelf stable meals which will be delivered to our clients for the Easter holiday. We maintain an inventory of these shelf stable meals which can be stored without refrigeration for our clients when we are closed for holidays or to use in the event of an emergency. The many duties covered by our staff leave no time to assemble these meals and we are dependent on volunteers to help with this very important task. To the Lamar University Team we say a very BIG THANK YOU for sharing your time with us. Working with you was a delightful and treasured experience.
