The Community spent the day at Pronto on Saturday August 26th!
Pronto's Community Day
There was food, facepainting, live music and lots of community partners sharing information including the police and fire departments. We gave out over 600 backpacks for school aged children and still managed to continue our regular services including food distribution on a very busy Saturday. The morning started out with a little rain, but nothing could dampen our spirits as it turned into a beautiful day and a very successful event.
As we get ready to kick off the month of September, here's a snapshot of all of the activities that Pronto wants you to know about!
