ELU helps Littles & Bigs

The United Way’s ELU (Emerging Leaders Union) joined our Littles and Bigs in helping to beautify the grounds around our agency last night.  They were planting, mulching, and more.  Sounds like a lot of work, but there were smiles all around — and, of course, there was the Pizza Party are all the work was done. We thank the ELU for all of your help, as well as the Bigs who did their part — and would be remiss if we didn’t say a big Thank You to the Littles for their hard work.
