Needs of Others
April 4, 2011
To the Editor,
On behalf of our clients, all of us at East Hampton Meals on Wheels do heartily thank Boy Scout Troop 298, all of the scout leaders, and the American Legion Post 419, who made possible the delicious spaghetti dinner on Sunday. Our volunteers delivered more than 50 dinners to our homebound clients, including family and caregivers. These meals were a very special treat, because our clients cannot shop, cook, or prepare their own meals.
We are extremely grateful that the scouts, while busy serving dinner guests at the American Legion, still had time to prepare takeout meals of the same quality for those unable to attend. It is heartwarming and comforting to know that so many individuals, especially young people, in the Town of East Hampton care so deeply about the needs of others.
We also thank the folks who purchased the tickets, which were donated to our organization so that our homebound friends might be included in this wonderful affair.
Finally, we thank our dedicated volunteers, who helped deliver the spaghetti dinners on Sunday afternoon.
Thank you again, scouts, for making this a success for everyone. Good luck in all your endeavors!
Very truly yours,
CYNTHIA P. KABACK
