The CITI team partnered with the Soldiers Angels organization and collected candy from several community entities, including Ms. Amanda Morey’s second grade class at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School in Falls Church, VA. The extra Halloween candy was shipped to US Military Troops at bases around the country. Together with these smiling second graders and several other generous organizations around the Falls Church area, CITI has shipped 375 pounds of candy to show support to our troops and brighten their day with the sweet treats. Special thanks to CITI team member Mindy Stecher for coordinating this effort. Mindy is pictured (seated left with black coat and hat) here with Ms. Morey (far right), PYP Coordinator Mrs. Checca (center doorway) and the cheery second graders.
CITI State and Local HHS Associate Director, Rachael Kerrick-Brucker got in on the fun packing boxes for local food pantries recently at the Midwest Food Bank in Central Illinois. Rachael, along with members of the Bloomington, IL. St. Mary’s Church Youth Group packed boxes and labeled canned goods to be shared with individuals and families in need through various pantries around town. All that packing warranted a stop for ice cream when the work was done.
