On Thursday, July 18, ITS Arizona visited the Andre House to volunteer for their nightly dinner service. The Andre House provides warm meals to those in need on six nights of the week. The ITS Arizona group of volunteers prepared the ingredients for the meal, cleaned the dining room, and served food to the guests. We met many other volunteers that make the dinner service possible on a regular basis. This was a great opportunity for us to meet other members of the community, learn to prepare a big meal together, and support the community. In addition, the ITS Arizona provided the Andre House with a monetary donation to support their ongoing service.
Thank you to all who volunteered with us! Stay tuned for more opportunities to volunteer with ITS Arizona.
