Feeding our Neighbors - A New England NACE Initiative from GENERATIONS cinemastories on Vimeo.


"This is Christina Doucette, formerly of the Hampshire House and Tupper Manor, now at
Cakes for Occasions in Danvers.  Through my past participation and membership in NACE,
I have for many years looked forward to participating in the Feeding Your Neighbors Initiative,
and hadn’t had occasion to do so until an unexpected opportunity this morning.  I am proud
to report that a gorgeous, delicious and nut-free cake was picked up by The Open Door in
Gloucester just a few moments ago. They were very thankful for the donation and we were
equally happy to see that it will be used to fill a need in our community.  I’m sure they will
be getting more calls from us in the future.  Thank you and NENACE for making this opportunity
so organized and making the process very simple!"
