Happy Thanksgiving from AFE!

Thanksgiving Greeting

Happy Thanksgiving from our AFE Family to yours.

Thanksgiving is a time of reflection, quality time with loved ones, great food, building memories and black Friday zeal.

This year AFE 168 gave thanks by giving back to the community via a day of service and a pie sale with Food & Friends. Food & Friends mission is to improve the lives and health of people with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses that limit their ability to provide nourishment for themselves by:

• preparing and delivering specialized meals and groceries that are designed to meet the medical and dietary needs of each of our clients;
• providing nutritional counseling and wellness education that enhances our clients’ quality of life; and
• creating a strong sense of community for both our clients and volunteers that reduces the social isolation that often comes with serious illnesses and provides meaningful opportunities for neighbors to help neighbors in need.

How are you spending this holiday?
