With the delivery of Holiday Baskets to the Widows and Orphans of the Lodge, Donation of our allotment of toys to Shiloh Baptist Church in Trenton, NJ also volunteering and assisting them in distributing the toys as well as feeding over 300 people.
Partnering with Shiloh was a new event for the Lodge and a very rewarding experience for Brothers Wilder and Sapp. Both were assigned the duty of moving the participants from one area to another.
Bro Sapp remarked, “It was a joy being a help were needed, I hope we (Woodlin) continue to find opportunities to be of service where we can”.
