Thank you to PerkinElmer employees who spent a day at Spooner House on Tuesday,
September 13. These wonderful volunteers deep-cleaned the floor and shelves in our food bank, trimmed and weeded around the outside of the building, served lunch, cleaned the laundry room, and assisted with several other cleaning and maintenance tasks around the facility. We are deeply grateful for groups like this who give their time, energy, and many hands on deck to make a big difference for an agency like ours.
