Rotary And Community Volunteers Pack 25,000 Meals For Hope In Just Over Three Hours During Saturday Event

Some 25,000 Meals for Hope were packed in just over three hours Saturday morning by Rotary Club of Los Alamos members along with dozens of community volunteers. There were loud cheers of joy as each milestone was reached – 5.000, 10,000, 15,000, 20,0000 and then 25,000. Each packet contained a scoop each of seasoning, peas, corn and rice. The food will be distributed on the Navajo Nation in coming weeks. Courtesy photo
