HOUSTON: A dedicated team of Club 24 Plus members visited the Turning Point Center on Sunday, April 19, as part of the outreach program of the club. They bought the groceries and cooked a hot meal for 90 residents for lunch.

It was a very gratifying and a bonding experience for the members as they spent their time cooking the meal together. At the request of the director of the center, the team prepared a light and healthy meal with an Indian twist keeping the residents health restrictions in mind and later served it to them.

The Turning Point Center is a non-profit organization which offers food, shelter and other rehabilitative services to meet the physical and emotional needs of a neglected segment of society: underprivileged individuals aged 50 and older who are unable to provide safe and adequate living conditions for themselves.

In words of Laxmi Murthy who was the main coordinator for this activity “It was a fulfilling experience and I am feeling blessed that we got a chance to have made a small difference in their lives at least for one afternoon”.
