A big thanks to Deb St. Julien who planned and facilitated the "CPR: Conversations on Privilege and Race" event on Saturday. It was well received by people who attended. We know many wanted to be there but could not due to scheduling conflicts, we hope to continue these types of conversations and events in the future, so keep your eye out!

And another thanks to our small & mighty crew who joined us on Sunday and helped us do some beautification on Almaden Hill's Campus, and put together summer packages for Willow Glen Cares! We are still short a few supplies, so we will keep collecting Lysol type cleaning spray, dish soap, size 6 diapers, feminine hygiene items, and Walmart gift cards this week. Just drop it off at Guys & Girls night or on Sunday night youth group.
