IN BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, VOLUNTEERS JOIN TOGETHER TO FACE THE PANDEMIC WITH LOVE.

WHEN RETIREE ERIC CALHOUN FOUNDED HIS NONPROFIT, SOLUTIONS INC., IN 2008, HE SET OUT TO AID HIS COMMUNITY in any way possible.

And in May 2020 they added another service: feeding a community in need during a global pandemic.
