Embracing the dream


A southern luncheon was served afterwards in the church hall.

In Haverhill, volunteers met at 10:30 a.m. yesterday to make “Welcome Bags” for people who would be staying at area homeless shelters and living on the street. The bags contained personal care essentials. Meanwhile, others were assembling 200 “to go” peanut butter and jelly sandwich lunches for people in need.

And yesterday evening, in two shifts, volunteers prepared, cooked and served community meals at the Salvation Army. An estimated 150 adults and children attended. Emmaus Inc. provides shelter, affordable housing and compassionate services for homeless individuals and families.
