Is there a better way to observe Valentine’s Day than by celebrating heart health and packaging meals for the hungry? Volunteers from the Iowa Heart Center didn’t think so!
On a chilly Saturday afternoon of a holiday weekend, Meals from the Heartland was honored to have about one hundred volunteers from the Iowa Heart Center in our packaging facility for a “Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve” event. Everyone from providers and nurses to executive and administrative staff brought their families and shared lots of smiles and laughter during their two shifts. We were lucky enough to also have WOI-Channel 5 stop by to cover the event.
Along with donations that help pay for the cost of the food, the Iowa Heart Center teams packaged nearly 35,000 meals in a short two hours!
