“I wanted to take a moment and acknowledge The Shapira Foundation for providing a wonderful meal to the Clark Center residents on Saturday. In addition to a wonderful bounty of assorted foods, it was all served on white table cloths. The [60] men here at the CC were very appreciative of their meal and I personally heard many of our participants express their thanks to this group. I believe this to be about the third year the Shapira’s have [volunteered] at the CC. Again, what nice people they were and what a very nice meal they provided”
