Memorial Day Weekend Distributions in the Portland and Denver chapters!
Denver Chapter had its first distribution! They served 30 meals and water bottles! Everything went by so fast, they didn’t even get a chance to take pictures! They will be doubling their servings for next time, they were so touched by need that they immediately stopped to buy a second pot for their next distribution.
Portland Chapter gave out 49 chili, biscuit, and coleslaw! This is what they had to say: “We ended up with 18 quarts of chili. Enough for 49 servings. 46 of coleslaw and a small mountain of biscuits. Everyone was so sweet and thankful. The gratitude they showed was humbling. It’s just a drop in the bucket really and it’s not that hard to do. These people face more difficulties in a single day than we do in a year and they were giving US blessings! We’re all in this together and we need to take better care of each other.”
I am so incredibly moved by these efforts! Thank you Peter and Kim, Jackie and Karen for all you do, and the teams of Veganteers! Together we are helping our community, and being compassionate to animals, the environment, and people!
Stay tuned next weekend for another New York, San Diego and Puerto Rico distribution!
