Our 2023 Joseph C. Cirelli Community Service Award winner, Beth McIntyre, is not only is one of the founding members of North Hills Cares, Inc., she is the Program Manager for the organization’s summer lunch program. When the organization determined that almost 25% of the students in the area are eligible for free/reduced lunches, Beth helped plan and execute their summer lunch program, helping to fill the gap of the 10 meals per child that are lost by these qualifying families during the summer months. Since the pandemic began, North Hills Cares summer lunch program has provided over 40,000 meals to children who might otherwise go hungry, under Beth’s leadership.
