We completed our first service project with St. Vincent de Paul Center, whose students we will work with this school year through the Blessings in a Backpack program. Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry.

For our first Community Day, Nicole from St. Vincent’s explained the impact of our partnership and guided us in creating motivation cards that will go in the backpacks that families receive. While we did not meet any of the students from St. Vincent’s today, the significance of the work was felt and we look forward to our partnership this school year.
