Helping those who need it most is my second passion and these local organizations are near and dear to my heart:
Tamela is Team Captain of the #1 pie selling team of volunteers who support the Annual Thanksgiving Bake Sale fundraiser called “Pie In The Sky” which benefits Community Servings. Since the team formed in 2009 they have raised over $200,000 for Community Servings thanks to generous support from family, friends and clients.
Community Servings is a not-for-profit food and nutrition program providing services throughout Massachusetts to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. Community Servings gives their clients, dependent families and caregivers appealing, nutritious meals to send the message to those in greatest need that someone cares. The goals of Community Servings are to help their clients maintain health and dignity and preserve the integrity of their families through free, culturally appropriate, home-delivered meals, nutrition education, and other community programs.
