Kids get to go to movies for the first time - Feb 27, 2016

Several families that attend the Expanding the Table food truck dinners have a few children who join in as well.  The volunteers that are part of that mission have become close to many of these families.  It came to light that many of the youngers, one 11 years old, had never been to the movies in their entire life.  Two volunteers offered to take 6 of the kids to the movies for one Saturday afternoon matinee.  Kung Fu Panda 3 was playing in the theaters and the kids were excited at the prospect of going to see the movie.  A date was scheduled and they all attended and enjoyed popcorn as well.  Change for a Dollar covered the cost of the movies outing for the kids.  A fun time was had by all.

Movie tickets and popcorn - $70
