From the Karen T. area
My kids with the guys at Raleigh Station 2. They especially loved it because they don’t get many visitors. Great guys, super friendly. And they showed us the humongous HazMat truck! They opened all the boxes and started asking about each item, making sure they knew what it was. Asked for tips on cooking the acorn squash. So glad I work on the recipe page so I could be a fountain of knowledge :). And they were also thrilled about the Box b/c they hadn’t been to the grocery store yet. Great job and huge thanks to all the members that donated.

A note to one of our members who donated a Box H.
Yesterday, I delivered your Box H to our neighborhood fire station on Brier Creek Parkway. They were very excited and very appreciative of all the fresh veggies. Thank you so much for your generous donation!

Bay leaf volunteer
The fellas were feeling the produce love! After seeing the gorgeous romaine talked about how they were having the urge for a salad for lunch, the captain actually told me they all just completed their fitness test that morning ( they all passed). So just in time for some healthy eating!! They loved getting the goodies!!

I visited the Bay Leaf Volunteer fire department this morning. I delivered a couple of H(ero) Boxes to them. They were SO thankful. It was a very rewarding experience and I was so proud to be involved paying it forward.
I finally delivered them! The guy that opened the door was in disbelief when I told him I was delivering fresh veggies on behalf of our members! The other three on station were also pleasantly surprised, I’d say. I told them how enthusiastic the members were about honoring their heroes.
At any rate, two of them were more than happy to have their picture taken and psyched about the boxes. They wanted to know how they could thank the members so I invited them to check out our Facebook page – to write on our wall and also to see how much the members really got behind this program and how much they appreciated our public safety workers.
