Rise to the Task Community Supper
I have worked in the Summer HELP program provided by this organization for the past four summers. It is such a great experience to work with the children of the community and provide for them a fun and safe summer. The opportunity to interact with them and leave with a positive experience leaves me feeling great about my job. I truly am thankful that this organization can provide this service to the community and I hope it will continue for many years to come.
