Last weekend we dished out compassion in NYC, Denver, and San Diego! We want to thank Kelsey Smith for donating a pot to the San Diego Chapter. Jimbo’s Natural Grocery for an in-kind donation of ingredients used for two distributions. Ruth Allison for a generous donation to Chilis on Wheels. A HUGE thanks to our Veganteers in all cities. And a thanks to ABCNY Eyewitness News for re-running the Above & Beyond Special where Chilis on Wheels was originally featured and which aired last Saturday. Here are photos and messages from the coordinators. Hope you’re having a good week, and we will be back to dish out compassion!
San Diego: Message from Tara Duke, Chapter Coordinator:“On Saturday we distributed 46 chilis and 50 waters in Downtown SD and City Heights! Thank you again to Kelsey Smith for the new pot! And to Jimbos natural grocery, their donation last week provided all of the potatoes, yams, tomatoes, veggie broth and corn for this weeks distribution! Thank you to my daughter Sophia for painting our new signs and my fiance Leilani for helping with the distribution”
Denver: Message from Jacqueline Carrera, Chapter Coordinator: “Today we distributed 60 vegan chilis in Denver. This time we doubled the amount and they were gone just as fast. A big thank you to our volunteers Jeff Jennewin, Karen Hutchins, and Doug Williams.“
New York City: “The rain couldn’t stop us! We gave out 101 vegan chili and 110 water bottles! Today’s distribution was made possible by a generous donation from Ruth Allison! A HUGE thanks to our veganteers Christopher, Bear, Ivan, and Ollie. For a better, gentler, more just world for everyone!“
Don’t miss this Saturday in NYC for the 4th of July, Evolve for Animals will be teaming up with us to dish out compassion and bring the message of veganism to the Lower East Side! Hope to see you there!
