Who doesn’t feel better after a nutritious meal? We know residents recuperating from serious illnesses or injuries at Interfaith’s Hawthorne Family and Veteran Center do! Help them become healthy again and provide the basic need of nutrition by transporting meals (along with our cook) from our kitchen at 550 West Washington Avenue, Escondido to our recuperative care center at 250 North Ash Street, Escondido. While you are there, help serve the meal and afterwards return our equipment (and cook) back to our main campus.
Note: Your vehicle must have enough space to carry 3 to 4 coolers.
