Backpack Party Pictures!

I’ll leave it to Thomas, the mastermind of our Oak Creek outreach, to share his thoughts on today’s project. But in the meantime, here’s a glimpse of all the fun we had loving our neighbors this afternoon. Many thanks to all our volunteers who came out to make it possible!
