Pujari will participate in Project OpenHand 2011
Dear Pujari patrons,
As most of you are aware, this is Pujari’s 25th year of thriving as a socio-cultural organization. Continuing in our tradition to give back to the community that we live in, like last year, this year too Pujari is participating in the Project Open Hand community development project (
). It provides comprehensive nutrition care for a diverse population with unique nutrition needs and has been serving the community for the past 22 years.
Pujari is calling for volunteers to participate in this community outreach and enrichment effort on August 28th, 2011. (9am to 12 noon) As a group we will volunteer to pack and seal food boxes that will be delivered to these individuals with special dietary needs. Kids 7 years and above are allowed to join us.
Here is a quick snippet of Project Open Hands
Open Hand helps people prevent or better manage chronic disease through Comprehensive Nutrition Care™, which combines home-delivered meals and nutrition education as a means to reinforce the connection between informed food choices and improved quality of life.
Open Hand seeks to eliminate disability and untimely death due to nutrition-sensitive chronic disease.
To serve our community by empowering people to live healthier, more productive lives.
Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org via email letting us know if you wish to volunteer for this cause. Please include the names and ages of all your family members who can participate. Kids 7 years and above are allowed to join us.
