Dad’s Club – Sack Lunch Success

Saturday’s event assembling sack lunches for Phoenix Rescue Mission was a huge success.  We had 80-90 parent and student volunteers.  We managed to make 500 sack lunches in less than hour.  The crew was amazing, even helping get everything loaded for delivery and the gym cleaned up afterwards. 

Thanks to everyone that participated.  Based on feedback and turnout, we will try to find more opportunities like this.  I highly encourage those of you that missed this to try to make the next one.  It was very cool seeing the kids get to participate in a good cause like this.

Thanks again, and since this is the last Dads Club event of 2016, have a great Christmas, and watch for our next event in 2017!
