Giving and enhancing the lives of others seems to be number one on the to-do list at Deerfield. It is not just during this season of giving, it is year-round. As we move into the holidays, we are honored to be featured in the Fall Non-Profit issue of Mountain Xpress.
We have a longstanding relationship with Meals on Wheels and Manna Food Bank, working year-round to bring food security to those in need. Preparing Thanksgiving Meals for 300 is a joyful event at Deerfield each year. It is a heartfelt morning starting with the preparation of meals and packaging, the gathering of residents and staff to pack the meals, and the incredible feeling of accomplishment and gratitude as the community volunteers who actually deliver the meals to those in need carry off the meals.
