After 20 months, Desert Mission Food Bank is open to in-person volunteering again. Jaburg Wilk was so excited to be their FIRST on-site and in-person volunteers in 2021! Outside in the shade on a beautiful fall day, we helped sort canned food and then bagged non-perishable food items for use in the upcoming holiday food needs. With just four volunteers, we sorted and bagged more than 350 bags of food. It was so great to be able to give back in person again!
