We had a fabulous day at Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless this past Saturday, April 20th. More than 15 CAYP members joined committee members from CFAC (CAYP for a Cause) to spend a day with the shelter guests and staff. We cooked a brunch of pancakes, bacon, fresh fruit, and orange juice while managing to keep the place standing and not burn the house down!
Others did some gardening projects outside in the beautiful sunshine. They planted flowers, raked the yard, and gave the property a beautiful makeover. It was a perfect day. We ate with the guests and learned about their lives and commitment to the homeless shelter.
After lunch, some of us prepared an Italian feast for the guests to heat up and eat that evening, while others worked on assembling favors for the Taste of Albany, a charity event to benefit Interfaith, sponsored by CAYP. We are looking forward to our next CFAC adventure, which we hope to schedule for this summer.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered Saturday and spent the day with us, helping the well being of others in our community.
