Families at Ritchie Park Elementary School in Rockville got together one evening recently and packed over 200 lunches for our shelter residents. Families gathered at the school for what has become an annual tradition. IW’s Diana Bernhardt, program director of our Wilkins Avenue Women’s Assessment Center, told the families how grateful our residents are for the lovingly packed lunches, which will provide essential nutrition to the women during the day as they seek out services or go to work. Many thanks to Ritchie Park parents, especially Julie Baron, Nettie Richards and Randi Freundlich, for spearheading this great evening that helps young students get involved in community service by focusing on the needs of others.
