Thank you to everyone who participated in our annual morning of community service on the day after Thanksgiving. After breakfast hosted by Temple Emanu-El, volunteers went to their choice from among six sites to lend a hand: Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Caps of Love, Levine Residential Services, Midtown Beach, and Pat Reeves Village. Nonperishable food and new toys were also contributed by several attendees and donated to Pat Reeves Village, as well as plastic caps and lids for Caps of Love.
