A big thank you to all the generous folks over at Tri State Truck Center for donating several tickets to Saturday nights’ Worcester Railers Hockey game! The Tri State Team is always so thoughtful and generous! We can’t begin to thank them enough for all that they do for us here at the Inn, from holiday meals to sponsorships, hockey tickets and more… their support is incredible!
On Saturday, we had the staff of Ken’s Foods Inc of Marlborough down to the Inn, cooking and serving a delicious BBQ dinner, all made with their famously delicious Ken’s Steak House Dressings!
The residents enjoyed a meal of Caesar salad made with Ken’s Tableside Caesar Dressing, BBQ chicken bathed in tangy Sweet Baby Rays Original BBQ Sauce, fresh garlic bread, french fries
served with Ken’s Buttermilk Ranch and Sweet Baby Ray’s dipping sauces, coleslaw tossed with Ken’s Magic Blend Coleslaw dressing, & Mint Chocolate Chip Mini Cakes.
They even donated some of their delicious dressings to us for distribution!
Everyone had a wonderful time, residents and staff alike. Such an incredibly generous donation by these employees, and an unforgettable dinner for our residents!
We are continuously thankful for and humbled by the community support we receive! We couldn’t do the important work we do, battling against food insecurity and the substance use epidemic, without the generosity of community members just like the staff of Ken’s!
This past Sunday, we had a great group of kids down to the Inn from St. Joseph-St. Pius X in Leicester. As part of our Evening Meal Program, they donated, cooked and served a delicious meal of parmigian crusted chicken thighs, baked potatoes with fixings, green bean casserole & chocolate chip cookies to the 29 residents of Jeremiah’s Inn. They also donated 30+ beautiful blessings boxes, one for each of our guys, filled with soaps, shampoos, toothpaste, deodorant, socks, and more.
These kids, made up of 6 ninth graders, along with their chaperones, demonstrated a great act of kindness in service to our residents, they dedicated their Sunday to coming down and spending time with the residents and serving us a delicious meal, and we are so thankful and humbled by their generous giving.
We look forward to having them down again soon!
Last night, we had the pleasure of having the Pam’s Porch 5 Community down to prepare and serve for our Evening Meal Program, and what a success it was! And so much food!! There was Ooey-Gooey mac & cheese, regular mac & cheese, spiral ham, turkey, lasagna, ‘Lazy Man’ lasagna, 8 rotisserie chickens, and ‘Pa’s chicken’ for the main courses. Garlic bread, two loaves of home made white bread, garden salad, spaghetti salad, & butternut squash made up the sides. Desserts included Pineapple upside down cake, frosted brownies, strawberry filled cupcakes, brownies, assorted home made cookies, lemon cake, Reese’s Peanut-butter cookies, Kentucky Bars, cream puffs, and candy!
Children passed out name tags for residents and cooks, helped set up, and drew names for a baseball cap giveaway.
This was a truly special evening for residents, staff and cooks alike. Put on in remembrance of Pam’s brother, David, who tragically passed away, this was a heartwarming tribute to him, along with all others we’ve lost to the disease of addiction. Pam spoke with the residents about her brother, and her loss, and spoke to the courage of our residents to continue to fight for their recovery.
Our hearts are so full of gratitude for the generosity of this group of people, who came here as strangers and left here as friends.
