March Mission Madness Recap

March Mission Madness Recap

Thanks to everyone who answered the call to join us for March Mission Madness! Your service always matters and we’re grateful that you took part. 

The madness began at 8:00 am on Saturday, March 11, when teams of youth and adults (60+ people) traveled to different service sites across the DMV. They  built benches, prepared/handed out food, organized items in a warehouse, and tackled a variety of odd jobs for an animal rescue center. Then, on Sunday, March 12, they gathered for dinner to celebrate, share pictures, and tell stories. 

What a day!
