Brigitte set the tone for service as she explained the background of the neighborhood and the various activities that the Union is seeking to provide to help create a positive environment - the Tool Library, Art for kids, and an open door for community gatherings and projects.
 
 
After an overview of the Food Bank's mission, our team set off to pack "Weekend Backpack Meals," a variety of food items that provide nourishment for kids on the weekend. Our group worked as a team and even managed a few mistakes along the way with a smile!

"I am very happy when we are working together."
