Many Hands Make Light Work
Sara Busey initiated the idea to serve one meal to migrants in Tucson who had come from detention and were awaiting transportation to their sponsors’ homes around the country. Dozens of GV Samaritans donated over $600 and food to organize a dinner for 60-100 people. Callie plans to use donations for future dinners when needed.
On December 23rd, Callie Conrad organized cooks and buyers to assemble the chicken and rice, beans and tortillas, fruit, cookies, drinks, and snack items. A handful of GV-Sahuarita Samaritans represented us in Tucson - feeding about 60 people, about half of whom were children less than ten years old. Many thanks to everyone who contributed time and money to this worthy project. The picture, below, shows the truck packed with food on its way to Tucson. Samaritans Callie Conrad and Susan Dyer are in the photo.
