Day of Caring by Steve Starke Editors note: Steve Starke is a Technical Service Representative for Crest Foods. He and his wife, Kristy, live in Walton, Kentucky. On Saturday June 24th my wife (Kristy), myself and numerous other employees from Crest Foods, participated in, for the 2nd year, the Day of Caring event put on by United Way of Lee County. With last year being the first time Kristy and I ever doing this sort of charity work, we left at the end of the day feeling a sense of pride that we took just a little bit of our time and helped some of those who are less fortunate and needed a little assistance (physically). We traveled to the town of Amboy in Illinois and went to a local mobile home park where mostly retired folk live. There were homes where the yards needed a little attention (weed eating, trees trimmed, flower gardens attended to, etc). These homes had been pre- arranged for us to assist those who needed it. While in the neighborhood, there were
The Crest Foods Crew: Ben & Caitlin Gleissner, Shirley Reif, Kristy & Steve Starke, June Danekas, Jeff & Erika Meiners, Holly Gleissner, Steve Crook, Dean Rhodes, Mandi Kersten and Tammy Crook
several people who stepped up to us, chatted with us and thanked everyone for their work and assistance. I person- ally could tell that the people who could not do these things for themselves were VERY appreciative of all the work each person participating in the United Way event provided for them. *We hope to participate in this event again next year. Please be sure to sign up when you see the request for volunteers!
