Nov. 24 – Thanksgiving on the road

Natalie’s journal entry on the road to deliver aid to camps in Northern Greece.

He had been shaking to the point where by the time Rita pulled in, we knew we wouldn’t make it to Thessaloniki unless we got it serviced. And go figure, they had a part we needed on hand for the door (only $3!) and didn’t charge us for the axle service after learning about where we were going and why. He still needs some work and new tires in a few months, but it was a Happy Thanksgiving miracle indeed. We finally made it to the Serres warehouse around 8:30 pm delivering in the dark, then swapped turkey dinner for feta and olive pizza before collapsing in bed, grateful we were “home.” — Natalie

#HermietheVan has been so good to us and countless other volunteers, but he needs some TLC to keep him healthy and delivering aid to where it’s needed most. Help us keep Hermie on the road by donating to: (comment #Hermie).
