On Friday, Nov. 19, residents and staff members from the Department for Persons with Disabilities dropped off new centerpieces at the Community Soup Kitchen in Morristown.
The centerpieces were handmade by members of the Wallace House in Sparta and other members of the Fight for the Right Community Service Group, made up of residents from the DPD who have organized together to volunteer in the community.
“Our residents were very excited to show their creative sides and help others,” said the organization’s behavior analyst and group leader Doreen Cook-Wottring.
“The beautiful centerpieces created by the Department of Persons with Disabilities group will brighten up the dining room of the Community Soup Kitchen and make the many guests that we are serving feel special,” said Marla Drury, director of development for the Community Soup Kitchen. “A big part of our mission is to treat everyone who comes through our doors with dignity and respect and make them feel comfortable at the soup kitchen. Anything extra-special that we can give our guests, like a comfortable place to enjoy their meal, and something interesting to adorn their table as they eat, goes a long way to making a difference in their lives.”
The group’s upcoming projects include a pet product drive to benefit the Second Chance Pet Adoption League in Oak Ridge and a canned food drive to benefit the Father English Center Food Pantry in Paterson.
