MEALS for MARSHA
We are continuing to help Marsha with meals as her broken wrist is healing. Because it was her dominate hand she has a difficult time with everyday chores.
It would be a great help to her if some could provide meals for her and Charlie. The meals can be homemade or a restaurant delivery, whichever would work best for you.

Can you help? Call the office to be scheduled.
