The tentative plan for next year is to continue to participate in local hunger programs like that ones that we volunteered with this year. We want to help places like Road Runner Food Bank, Meals on Wheel and Seed2Need gardens because food insecurity is such a big issue within our community. We also plan to partake in decorating the campus again for Hanging of the Greens so that our community can enjoy a festive campus event.
