Maya - Food Bank - holding potatoOn Tuesday, July 27, Maya, Autumn, Julie, and Santi worked from 1-4 at the Food Bank Distribution Center! Thanks, Julie, for the inspiration and thanks Maya for showing up and winning the Sole and Soul Youth Member Award for July! Our little group joined a slightly larger group and sorted through huge barrels of dry and canned donations to pack 2,917 meals for children with cystic fibrosis. Then we hit the large warehouse and sorted and bagged potatoes. (Thanks to Julie, we found a bin with less rotten options.) Maya’s good heart was affirmed by her discovery of a heart-shaped potato! We, along with other volunteers, bagged 10,300 lbs. of potatoes which translates to 8,853 meals.

CUCC youth will help again on August 19 from 1-4PM. Sign UP SOON! Spots fill quickly! Look for an email with details about how to register or contact Santi for details.
