She immediately got in her car and drove to the site where donations were being taken. Once finding out the number of coolers still needed for OCMM to being compliance with the cooler requirement, Hudson and Patricia Davis, director of OCMM, dashed off to two Kmart locations to make the necessary purchase of 32 coolers.
"I had to help," said Hudson, "So many people are depending on Oakland County Mobile Meals, and I couldn't stand the thought of so many people not getting their meals simply because of coolers. "As the Community Development officer of Fifth Third Bank, I understand that we strive to make meaningful investments that really make a difference in our community. I saw this opportunity and knew it was the right thing for us to do."
"We are so blessed that Angela heard my cry for help, and thankful for the coolers from Fifth Third Bank," said Davis.
Oakland County Mobile Meals delivers two meals per day, a hot dinner and cold supper, to their clients, totaling over 500 daily, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. The meals are prepared in the kitchen of First Baptist Church of Royal Oak.

They have a dedicated but declining group of volunteers and are in great need of more help. Volunteer drivers and kitchen helpers are needed. To volunteer, please call (248) 398-0990.
