Residents box lunch for homeless
"I like to do things for other people. I have no time to get in trouble," said Harris, a resident of Loyalton assisted living center near Robinwood.
This week Harris and about nine other residents at Loyalton are volunteering their time packing lunches for the Cold Weather Shelter run by the Religious Effort to Assist and Care for the Homeless, or REACH.
"It keeps me busy," said Harris.
Loyalton was asked to prepare 30 to 40 lunches per day for the week, said Marketing Director Susan Murray. The lunches consist of a sandwich, fruit and chips or pretzels.
