In Reading, thousands of homeless and low-income men, women and children are helped by the Opportunity House, a nonprofit, multi-service organization, each year. On Monday, November 11, team members from RKL’s Reading office had the opportunity to support this extraordinary non-profit’s efforts by providing a hot dinner to more than 65 individuals.
“Helping members of our community in need is something that our team feels strongly about,” commented Lindsey Akers, a supervisor in RKL’s Small Business Services Group. “Being there, cooking dinner, interacting with the Opportunity House’s clients and seeing firsthand how our help can make a difference was a rewarding experience for everyone who volunteered.”
The November dinner was the second meal that RKL Reading’s team served at Opportunity House in 2013. As a volunteer group, the RKL team was responsible for planning, purchasing, preparing and serving the meal. The Opportunity House relies on volunteer groups to prepare and serve dinner 365 days a year and lunch on weekends. Visit Opportunity House’s website to learn more about the organization.
