Teaching Hands in Boise and American Legion Post 113 in Meridian (22 W. Broadway)have partnered to give meals on the 1st and 3rd Thursday from 5-7:30pm. The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 113 of Meridian has been gracious in volunteering baking goods for the dinner.

"Anyone is welcome to attend. No questions asked," stated Williams. During tomorrow's dinner, (Thursday 17, 2011) of beef vegetable soup we are giving free handcrafted items of hats, scarves and children's sweaters. There will be volunteers willing to demonstrate to anyone interested the needle arts: knitting, crocheting and loom knitting. All of us at Teaching Hands loves to socialize and help where we can. See you tomorrow evening!

“We care about our children, veterans and families and we understand there are veterans in need, suffering and the homeless situation,” Williams said.
