Wow, what a week! We hit two milestones by serving over 300 meals on both Tuesday and Thursday nights. We can’t thank Backroads BBQ enough for the continued support. By 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, we had run out of the initial meal. Mike and the crew at Backroads were able to supply an additional 150 meals for us within 30 minutes. Christian Stafford, Lebanon Unit Director and Bridget Griffin, Kitchen Manager have continued to go above and beyond to meet the needs of the Boone County community. In just five weeks, we have served 5,363 meals!
We are committed to serving the meals until May 29 from the Lebanon Unit, 403 W. Main St. Meals will be available Monday through Friday, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The support from the community for food donations, monetary donations and volunteers has been generous and is so appreciated. We could not do this program without everyone’s support. You are all truly demonstrating we are IN this together. We will continue to write grants and solicit donations to keep the program funded.
Donation boxes are available outside the Zionsville Unit, 1575 Mulberry Street or at any of the locations in Lebanon, Whitestown and Zionsville from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday – Friday.
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 5 for the Giving Tuesday, #Togetherwegive fundraising campaign. Look for more information, videos and opportunities to give in the next two weeks.
