“That was such a fun location and a great way to give back. “ Emily, 2016 Dream Dinners Volunteer
During October, twenty WLD members came together to meet, laugh, and create nutritious meals. The WLD assembled and donated a total of 100 family meals to the Indianapolis Julian Center, a shelter for people escaping from domestic abuse, and to Eskenazi Embrace, a support program for women undergoing chemotherapy.
Our “Dream Dinners” event is always a popular gathering for WLD student and regular members. “Dream Dinners” owner Stacey Hiller provided snacks for our crew in addition to all the ingredients, organization, and direction to help WLD volunteers create four different meals. Each meal was then stored in the freezer for pick up.
As a recipient, Deanna Wesley, explained, “A cancer diagnosis is devastating. However, the severity of the crisis is compounded when the patient has extremely limited resources and no support system… It is critical that a patient has access to food and nutrition throughout treatment, in order to ensure the best possible outcome….Thank you!”
A big THANK YOU to WLD, Quarles & Brady, and all of our volunteers for making Dream Dinners possible this year!!! See you in 2017.
