TIAA volunteers at Metrocrest Services

Jul 5, 2018 | News

On June 28, 11 TIAA volunteers met at the Texins Activity Center to go to Metrocrest Services located in Farmers Branch, Texas.  Metrocrest coordinator Brittani suggested we break into two teams so five of us worked in their food pantry and six of us were transported to their clothing distribution center located in Carrollton, Texas. The pantry team spent the morning stocking the food shelves with canned goods, breads, produce, and household items. The second team unloaded bags of donated clothes and shoes, then sorted and hung them onto racks for client distribution. We then went to Babe’s for a delicious lunch and were joined by Max Post, TIAA Activities Committee Chair. Afterwards, we had a presentation to our Senior Source RSVP coordinator, Louise Watkins, to honor her several years of service providing volunteer projects to our TIAA teams. We presented Louise with a certificate making her an “Honorary TIAA Member” which pleased her beyond words. This was a special day to all of us and to Louise – a day we will cherish for years to come.  The slideshow can be viewed here.
