Helping people in need gives Stephanie Booker joy, especially knowing that her late husband, Richard Carter, a Vietnam veteran, found passion in helping others too.
An interview with Stephanie Booker about this year's AWESOME Easter Mass Food Giveaway.
Abigail: We’re talking with Stephanie Booker, founder of AHARI about an upcoming Easter Giveaway. Stephanie, can you first start off by telling us about AHARI and what drives you to host this event?
Stephanie: In March 2020, AHARI started picking up 20 food boxes from The Church of Christian Compassion and perishables from The Church of the Overcomers to serve our veterans population. By October of 2020, AHARI secured a partnership with Caring For Friends which has allowed AHARI to serve over 20,000 boxes of food! The gratitude and amazement on the faces of individuals we serve, compel me to continue serving those in need.
