Thank you to all of our donors and volunteers who made it possible for us to provide 233 families with all of the fixings for their holiday meal this week!  We especially would like to thank New England Apple, Epic Enterprises and Restoration Orchard for their donations to our holiday dinner distribution!  As one of our neighbors said with tears in her eyes…”I want you to know what a profound impact you have on so many families.”
