On Saturday, December 20th a group of Waring students and parents travelled to Gloucester to volunteer at the Open Door Food Pantry. While there, they helped to serve a community meal to those in need. Before inviting clients in, Open Door Executive Director Julie LaFontaine quoted poet Miller Williams saying:
“Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don't want it. What seems conceit, bad manners, or cynicism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen. You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone.”
Thanks to Vicki and Sam Lincoln for organizing this amazing day.
