Thanksgiving is the time of the year that like the name suggests, we give thanks for everything that we are grateful for. When asked what we are thankful for, things like family, friends, and love come into mind first. However, one of the things that we should be thankful for the most is that we have food on our plates everyday unlike many people in the world.
The Houston Food Bank is the only one that has carousels that travel around the bank, carrying packaged boxes of food. At our evening shift on 11/20, all of the volunteers together packaged over 7,500 meals. The AYLUS members that were a part of this shift were:
Shivani Guha, Lauren Yang, Quynhmai Tran, Michelle Zhang, Jessie Wang, Catherine Li, Emily Lin, Courtney Starks, Andrew Liu, Saaket Poray, and Hanzheng Li.
A huge thank you to all of these volunteers and parents that came out to help our community!
