NGAGE Fall Service Project

November 2, 2012

What better way to spend a fall afternoon than to volunteer?  Just ask the high school students who participated in the NGAGE: Next Generation Actively Gaining Experience fall service project last week.  We had a great time teaming up with Clean the World Foundation and sorted two pallets of donated toiletries from local hotels that will be sanitized and recycled into hygiene kits that are distributed around the globe.  These high school volunteers are awesome workers!
