The VC is grateful for the hundreds of volunteers who showed up on Saturday, March 16 for one of our most meaningful days of service. Tables filled with family, friends old and new, and community groups who helped assemble 100,440 nutritious meals for starving Nicaraguans, which surpassed our 100,000 goal! This is always a fast paced and fun service project that has become an annual tradition!

Over 19,000 items were collected for 17 nonprofits, thanks to record-breaking donations, abundant volunteers and a beautiful Fall day.

A great community event in every way!
