TFC assisting Joyful Journeys with Hygiene and Shelf-Life Bags

Teens For Change (TFC) youth leadership board members leaped on the opportunity to help their community by joining Joyful Journeys in passing out shelf-life bags and hygiene bags at Bennett Park and Recreation District. This opportunity was made possible through a grant Joyful Journeys received from Adams County to put together and hand out the bags to community members along the corridor that need assistance with food disparities.

Shelf-life bags will be handed out the 4th Monday of each month, from 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM in the Bennett Park and Recreation Districts parking lot. No appointment necessary, first come first serve.
