HUNGER & HOMELESSNESS
COOKING AT THE BRISBEN CENTER
Several times each year, the chapter purchases food and members gather at the Brisben Center, our local homeless shelter, to cook and serve a meal.
MEALS FOR HOMELESS VETERANS
Chapter members work with our local Disabled American Veterans chapter to prepare and serve breakfast to homeless veterans.
What age defines a person as a senior? We have seen it as anywhere between 50 & 70. Through our contributions and volunteering, we think our chapter works to support people of all ages.
