April 29th was a busy day with over 60 volunteers coming into our Warehouse to help us sort, organize and begin the process of getting ready for our upcoming Cinco de Mayo celebration. We had 40 GMU students in at 9 AM and they worked efficiently and productively for 3 solid hours.

Hats off to Rob Miller, Coordinator of Orientation and Student Leadership Team for putting this community service project together with our Operations Manager; Nicole Morris. This would not have been a smooth operation without the assistance and hands on contribution of time and experience from the "Super Sisters" and members of the Board of Directors - Cyndi Shanahan and Cindy Dwyer. 

Our second shift of the day arrived at 1pm and was here until 4pm. The UVA Club of Loudoun; some great people from the Wahoo Nation. The warehouse is looking clear and clean for the 10th Anniversary Celebration. Tickets and Sponsorships are still available. The praise and comments from Cyndi and Cindy ranged from courteous and to terrific!
