Today the Cafe of Life served 125 people-in-need a very special Thanksgiving meal at Leitner Neighborhood Park in Bonita Springs.
Some 45 volunteers donated over 170 hours to organize, prepared and serve the meal.
De Simms was the event coordinator.
Clients were served at their table rather than then the normal going through the line themselves. The event started with a prayer.
In addition to the “traditional” Thanksgiving meal, the clients also had the opportunity to take many leftovers and to go through the robust take-home food pantry.
There was a special station for kids to decorate cookies.
