Our local Publix (located at McGinnis Ferry and Peachtree Industrial in Suwanee) has supported The Next Stop in many ways over the last few years. Each year at our family and friends fall event, they make sure we have all the ingredients we need for the lasagna we prepare for over 200 people. They even send a crew of employees to serve the food to our guests–and even clean up!
This summer we asked for another form of help….and yes, they came through. During the summer, we offer a bowling day for our members on Fridays. Publix sent 5 volunteers each bowling day to help us staff this outing. Each employee who came to volunteer was encouraging, cheerful and attentive. We all loved making new friends–especially our members!
We want to thank store manager Dan Draves! He sets a terrific example of community service and we are so very grateful to him and to his employees!
