[PHOTOS OF THE MONTH] This month we welcomed many student volunteers from local schools like Sidwell Friends (pictured above). Volunteers came in the morning to learn about the power of recycling, create art with up-cycled materials, and play together on the renovated rooftop alongside CentroNía's Pre-K students.
