A โ€œWHOPPING 5,000lbsโ€!! OUT A SIGHT ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ

Our other activity was at a Community Church in Pittsburg. Distributing produce and fruits to the local residents.
This is a great way to meet and talk to the people of the area, really โ€œopens you eyesโ€ to their needs.
Also, the attending members recognize how SIR Branch 8 volunteering is fulfilling.
