Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 06, 2013
On November 28th, 2013, Thanksgiving morning, Branches delivered 6,389 hot meals to needy individuals and families in less than four hours. This is the largest meal delivery effort in Florida on Thanksgiving Day. 1,574 volunteers at 8 sites throughout Miami-Dade and Broward Counties worked hard on Thanksgiving morning by putting together individual meals via assembly lines and passing them off to volunteer drivers who delivered them. Each meal included turkey, stuffing, green beans, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, a roll with butter and of course a piece of pie.
However, Branches Thanksgiving program is about much more than just a hot meal; all meals include a Meal Insert, which provides clients with valuable information about community resources and programs in English, Spanish and Creole. Branches partnered with several United Methodist congregations as well as Temple Israel to make this Thanksgiving miracle possible. The cooking preparations began a few days prior which included the seasoning of turkeys and prepping of all the vegetables, trimmings and dessert. Many volunteer chefs and cooks spent countless hours getting ready for the big day to make sure that everything went off without a hitch.
A huge thank you goes out to our premiere Thanksgiving Meal Delivery sponsors:
Brown Mackie College Miami
United Way of Miami-Dade
Goya Foods of Florida

Question by Evelyn: Why can’t I use my FSA card for over the counter purchases under new health care law?
The new health care law requires me to have a script from my doctor to purchase over the counter medication like aspirin or allergy medication. So I bother my doctor via a phone call or sometimes even pay for a visit just to get a script for something that can be bought over the counter. How is this a good use of my money that I have set aside in this account to cover my medical costs.
Answer by Jay
There was too much cheating. Blame the people who abused it.
The good news is that you can still buy with cash/check/credit card/debit card and submit your receipts. You don’t need to bother the doctor, although you do need to deal with submitting.

There have been no female chief mediators in UN-brokered peace talks and fewer than 10% of police officers and 2% of the soldiers sent on UN peacekeeping missions have been women.Fewer than one in 40 of the signatories of major peace agreements since 1992 have been female according to the UN development fund for women Unifem.
