Many thanks to outgoing Board Member Lynn Herald who has tirelessly served our great organization for years and will continue to do so in a non-official volunteer role in 2014.
On November 28th, 2013, Thanksgiving morning, Branches delivered over 5,000 hot meals to needy individuals and families. This is the largest meal delivery effort in Florida on Thanksgiving Day. Over 1,100 volunteers worked hard on Thanksgiving morning putting together individual meals via assembly lines and passing them off to volunteer drivers who delivered them. However, Branches’ Thanksgiving program is about much more than just a hot meal; all meals include a tri-lingual Meal Insert, which provides clients with valuable community resources. To be part of Branches’ next event and watch a Miami HEAT game with the special chance to throw free throws after the game on the court, please visit us at www.branchesfl.org/miamiheat-game
