My friends and I wanted to do another project that focused on the homebound. I reached out to Mobile Meals in Akron, Ohio and this was the response I received.
“Thank you for your interest of doing a volunteer project for Mobile Meals. Mobile Meals is a not-for-profit organization that serves meals daily to people of all ages and economic circumstance. Our mission is to provide healthy meals and nutrition services to enrich lives and foster independence. We greatly depend on volunteers to help us accomplish this mission and are deeply grateful for their service.”
We decided to make reusable placemats in an attempt to spread happiness through a little color and a handmade item filled with care – just as a message that someone was thinking about the recipients and sending them some good wishes.
