Giving Back on Christmas Eve

This Christmas Eve we gave back to the community by volunteering at the Lee County Soup Kitchen. Mom, I and Aunt Mary Ann went this morning to help make and serve lunch. I must say that a LOT of work goes into preparing the about 100-200 meals every day. About half of the people who come for lunch do not have a bed to sleep in and for most people that is the only meal that they get for the day. We were there for about 4 hours and the whole time was busy busy busy. From making salads to boiling water for all of the veggies everyone was working hard. It was a good feeling to give back this Christmas and be thankful for all that we have.
