Rebuilding Together
Amazing time volunteering with Rebuilding Together Solano County . We all came together to help Fairfield High School with various projects such as creating gardens, helping with parents and student centers, landscaping, and cleaning rooms. There was so much to do and with the help of the community we all were able to contribute. “Today is Martin Luther King Jr. day...it isn’t a day off but a day on. Everybody can be great because everybody can serve”.
