As we celebrate our 70th anniversary, we’ve made the decision to spend part of our year engaging in something we are calling “70 Acts of Service.”

Throughout the year, our participants will be volunteering in various capacities and giving something back to the community that has given us so much since our humble beginnings back in 1948.

Our first act of service for this year is actually something we do every week. Every Thursday we send a crew out to theĀ Power Packs Project, one of the many great nonprofits in our area. Our participants loaded up a truck with food and then deliver it to Carter & MacRea Elementary School for distribution to the families of kids in the school lunch program. By doing this, not only are we serving our community, but our participants are learning valuable vocational skills, along with the importance of community work.

Here are some photos of Gary, Maria, and Michael helping out:


This is just one way that we and our participants are giving back to our community.

And, this is just the first of AT LEAST 70 Acts of Service we’ll be doing throughout the year.

If you have ideas for us on ways we can serve area organizations, businesses, or individuals, email us with your ideas, and we’ll consider adding it to our list. We’re always on the lookout for more opportunities!
