We had a volunteer group from Cambridge come and help us this afternoon, and they did a wonderful job! They not only filled bags, but also helped set everything up for production and opened boxes! They filled approximately 300 bags that are now ready for delivery over the next two weeks! Thank you Cambridge for the great help! November 27, 2023.
