Quality Independent Living (QIL) recently held a week-long bake sale (see article in the July 11 Chronicle, “Local Senior Apartment Community to hold ‘Bake Sale for Book Bags.’”) They not only met their goal of raising $300, but exceeded it, raising a total of $500. On Friday, August 2, several residents of QIL, along with Director Annette Nichols, delivered 30 book bags to Bethesda Center for the Homeless. Delores Little, the front office manager of Bethesda Center, thanked QIL for the donation and said that it will help the homeless to keep up with their possessions and keep them from getting  lost or wet when it rains.

Patricia Meinhart, a resident of QIL, said that the residents really got into the Bake Sale for Book Bags project, knowing the needs of the homeless, but added, “We felt like it was a bigger blessing for us to be able to serve.”

They plan to use the remaining funds from the bake sale for another project. Quality Independent Living is located  at 5068 Lansing Drive.
