Aid for Friends Cooking Event Brings Food & Fun To Home-bound People

‘Tis the season to give back, and many SofterWare elves are taking part. A group of eleven recently volunteered at Aid for Friends.

Operating since 1974, Aid for Friends is one of the largest and most established home delivered meals program in Pennsylvania, serving 300,000 free dinner meals, 58,000 soups and 42,000 breakfast bags to an aggregate 1,700 home- bound persons each year. They also provide nearly 100,000 hours of friendly visiting annually to home-bound individuals.

They had a wonderful time baking cookies, peeling and dicing potatoes, preparing vegetables, packaging cupcakes and scrubbing serving trays (yes, giving back can even make ‘doing the dishes’ fun!)

Our happy helpers: Donna Mitchell, Ellen Molon, Ellen Qureshi, Kathy Piunti, Laura Beth Bigelow, Lauren Sheehan, Laurie Wernick, Lindsey Minnich, Melissa Winterborne, Paula Burns and Debbie Foster
