Holiday Service with EBCAP

“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”  -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

At Bristol Good Neighbors: AmeriCorps member Amy carries a full crate of canned goods

In preparation for this holiday season, the East Bay Community Action Program’s AmeriCorps team worked in tandem with the RI Food Bank and the Boy Scouts to provide Thanksgiving gift baskets for needy families. The team worked diligently to separate, sort, and organize all the donated canned goods and other food items, and finally assemble over 100 gift baskets.

At times, the work was tedious, back-breaking, or otherwise challenging, but as Dr King’s quote above says, all work done in the service of uplifting mankind is worth doing, and worth doing well!
