Memo from Elizabeth Church Manor

We received a lovely letter, along with a donation, from Elizabeth Church Manor for CHOW.  Here is some of that letter:


DATE:       11/5/09

TO:            Ed

SUBJECT: Elizabeth Church Manor Donation

Through our GROW BROOME Program at Elizabeth Church Manor, residents sold the produce that they grew and want to contribute the monies raised to CHOW. 

This whole experience has been rewarding for us all.  We have seen a marked change in the residents participating in this program, especially in their feeling of worth still being able to give back to the community.

This shows how volunteering your time and contributing to your community can also help your own health and well-being.  A big thank you to the residents!! (And the produce was wonderful.  I was able to purchase some when my grandmother was in rehab there.  The earth boxes were bountiful this summer!)
