AmeriCorps Service Week 2021: Day 5

We’ve reached the final day of AmeriCorps Week! To end the week with a bang we partnered with Unidos Por La Musica. This non-profit organization based in San Bernardino is a mobile food pantry. For today’s event, we did a drive-thru event, giving each family a box full of groceries. Each box included meat, milk, cheese, celery, apples, potatoes, and rice. First 5 Service Corps members Tania Linares, Saryna Lopez, and Jessica Pinto volunteered with Arrowhead United Way to help give out the food items, direct traffic, and set-up/break-down of event. It was such an amazing and rewarding experience to see families so thankful for the food they were given, especially during such a difficult time. We appreciate the team effort that went into today’s event, and enjoyed addressing the food insecurities within the community.
