Dear friends, members and volunteers of HelpBerkeley-
Yesterday we had our largest run! We delivered 1,038 Holiday meals, with 47 drivers, many of whom were first-time drivers, 39 packagers and baggers, 4 pickup managers, and many more volunteers.
We are very happy to have shared all this food: as a good Frenchman, I always feel that everything can be solved with food The reason, of course, is that you share food with those you care about.
The point of sharing a meal is not to feed, but to share companionship, in the same way as you laugh with your friends but you don’t laugh alone.
When we volunteer at HelpBerkeley, we do so because we care about our neighbors and our community. We are all physically alone this Holiday, but spiritually we are not alone. We are all surrounded by this warmth of companionship that our network our caring neighbors and friends provides.
So let’s post lots of pictures and make this a virtual Holiday celebration: Happy Holidays to all!
In my household, we would like to share our lovely Holiday lunch. My firstborn son came back to us today to be with us for a while. We waited for him to celebrate Hanukkah, so today is our first day of Hanukkah . He made his own first Hallah, and there, below, are my two sons, celebrating with us:
