For the 7th year, Community Servings staff and volunteers will participate in the annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Ashley Boyd, our Volunteer Recruitment Coordinator, will walk 39 miles for this two day event, and our kitchen staff will prepare close to 6,000 meals to feed walkers on both days. Meanwhile, staff and volunteers will cheer on walkers at two locations along the route. To support Ashley, click here.
Avon has been a long-time supporter of Community Servings and our clients with breast cancer. Through their funding over the past several years, we have provided 180,000 free home-delivered meals to 347 women with breast cancer, their caregivers and dependents. We have distributed over a thousand care packages of soup, juice, and crackers to those experiencing nausea due to treatment. Also, with Avon's help we have produced nutrition education materials and conducted an annual nutrition seminar for those with breast cancer, their families and friends, and community partners.
Please join us in cheering on the walkers!
