We had such a great time last week on our Where Love Grows service trip!

On Wednesday, May 22, the Partnership staff embarked on a service trip with Where Love Grows, which is an organization committed to helping to end child hunger.


Last week, we had the opportunity to go to Potter Elementary School and serve food to children and families as they celebrated a fifth-grade graduation ceremony! As a community impact-based organization, we pride ourselves in being able to give back in this way.


Huge thank you to Where Love Grows for allowing us to give back!
