We took the opportunity to partner with a local church for reaching and supporting a community of low-income families.
Ascend planned and held a carnival event, while we did what we do best, giving essentials to the families.
In short, we brought a trailer full of baby and kid's clothing, toys, furniture, household goods, and other miscellaneous items.
It was a joy to watch moms and their kids rush after slightly used toys and clothes.
Throughout the year, there were times we felt overwhelmed with the volunteer work and neck-high piles of donations, but it was all worth it to see people's needs met
