Aid for Friends
Each year the Fighting Robovikings has helped our community by reaching out to the isolated homebound. Members of Team 2607 prepare, assemble and pack home-made meals for Aid For Friends. Aid for Friends is the largest and most comprehensive meal delivery program in the five county Greater Philadelphia region.
This year members of our team 2607 got together to pack breakfast bags for Aid for Friends. The fighting Robovikings assembled breakfast and snack bags for Aid for Friends to provide to home bound members of our community. The team donated items like granola bars, juice, cocoa etc. and coordinated an assembly line and packed 196 bags.
“We Care” hand made cards for Aid For Friends.
Members of the Fighting Robovikings made 196 “We care” cards to go along with the breakfast bags. The shut-ins really like to receive these cards and they love to hang them on their refrigerators. These small tokens of appreciation keep the home bound feeling connected and cared for.
“Thank you for the donation on November 19th of One Hundred and Eighty-eight Breakfast Bags by the Archbishop Wood High School Robotics Team 2607. Aid For Friends appreciates the breakfast bag donations for our very needy client/friends. We guarantee seven frozen dinners, but the extra food for breakfast is not always available. The Aid For Friends client/friends depend on volunteers for their everyday nutritional and emotional support. Thanks for your kindness and compassion. Keep up the great work.”
