366 Project - Day 317 - "Rake N' Bake"

November 12, 2016 - "Rake N' Bake"

This morning our little family joined 1,000 other volunteers from the Greater Danbury Area for the 17th Annual "Rake N' Bake" community volunteer project.

Over 75 teams of volunteers met at Brookfield High School early in the morning... and after a blessing led by Fr. Silva of St. Joseph Parish, left the school to rake the lawns of members of the community who are not able to do so themselves due to age or disability. After several hours of raking we all gathered at the school again for lunch.

It was a wonderful experience which our family fully intends to make a yearly tradition from this point on.
