Parishioners of the St. Charles School and Parish in Burlington are helping out their neighbors victimized by damaging floods the best way they can, with a warm smile and a hot meal.
As flood water subsides in Burlington, neighbors are left cleaning up their homes and businesses. Monday was the first day the city was able to pick up debris. In the midst of the mess, many are coming together to serve hot meals to those affected by the flooding.
“Everything from pork chops and beef and spaghetti and beautiful desserts, lots of hot vegetables,” said St. Charles Principal Mary MacDonald.
Neighbors in Waterford started making food Friday, and several churches jumped in. Now more than 75 volunteers are making dinner for anyone who needs it.
