A huge shout out to the The City of Foley and Days of Caring partnered with United Way! A much needed pathway to our front lawn for extra parking as we are bursting at the seams with students, and classes! Also a huge shout out for our great team for part of the day was spent sorting many, many, many books that are provided each month for our community!
