    Lori's Hands launches podcast

    May 26, 2021 | Written by Kelly Bothum
    Jennifer McCord knows the history of Lori’s Hands because she was there when it started. McCord, a University of Delaware alum, lived in the apartment with co-founders Sarah LaFave and Liz Bonomo where the idea for this intergenerational service learning organization first blossomed. Now she’s the creator and producer of a five-part podcast about Lori’s Hands clients called “Community Voices.” The series, which debuted May 14, spotlights not just clients but the way their surroundings and lives color their experiences. Clients talk about their professional life, their personal challenges and reflect on how their community has influenced their lives.
