Elton Cumberbatch:

Good evening everyone. Today event was a great success. We fed over 200 homeless with some delicious Caribbean style meal. Special thank you to those who came out on such a special day to give back to the community. We all had a great and enjoyable time.

Benita, your kids did a great job serving the food. That's a great reflexion on you.

Benita Dufresne:

It was an honor! We're glad be part of it. We're proud to serve the community.  Blessings to you and all of the other members who came out. That is a greater reward than any amount of money. One lady was having a bittersweet moment.  She was happy because we came out to serve on this special day. I offered her a hug...man...she held on to me to let it all out. I can tell she has not received that compassion in a long time. I was blessed to be there. If you still have that video clip please share it with me. I received way more than I gave today. Thanks for asking me to join SDCA LT!
