Successful Community Service Day

CAABJ 1st Community Service Day Event

If you missed our 1st Community Service Day, then you missed a treat. It was great to see everyone roll up their sleeves and join in this worth wild event. We had twenty-two journalists to attend. When you think about sorting non-food products, inspecting boxes and stocking donations, this sounds like a piece of cake. Needless to say, it was HARD WORK but with great team work, we were able to accomplish our goal before the 12 Noon deadline and retire at our meeting spot "All American Pub" for a great lunch. Because many of you truly had a ball, we will be doing this again really soon. Stay tuned...

Our past CAABJ President, Jarvis Holliday said, it best... "To whom much is GIVEN, much is REQUIRED." It's our civic responsibility to help those less fortunate than us.

Special thank you to Second Harvest Food Bank staff for all their assistance in making this happen.
