Kindness, Compassion, and Mutual Aid by Dave Loewenstein

In our last UPDATE, we thanked the volunteers for our bi-weekly Wednesday  food delivery program. This month we thank the many shop and deliver volunteers who stepped up at the start of the pandemic.

Using a UIDN shopping, list volunteers shopped and delivered to an immigrant family in need. Sometimes these dedicated volunteers refused reimbursement from UIDN funds; several forged friendships with the families.

Special thanks to Leslie Gallagher and Kim Touchette who coordinated shop and deliver, and now lead UIDN’s bi-weekly markets.

Please let us know if we have missed anyone and watch for more thank yous in print next month. We thank each of you every day in our work together.

Thank you Shop & Deliver Volunteers
