Despite rain on Friday, our staff and community partners were ready to begin welcoming families at 10am. We had over 200 participants attend this month's Family Activity Day, and look forward to welcoming them and other families to our Santa's Workshop Family Activity Day in December.
Again, a tremendous thank you to our community partners, Baptist Memorial of North Mississippi, CUB Lab, Lafayette County Literacy Council, More than a Meal, and the Oxford Community Market, as well as all the other volunteers who helped make this month's FAD a success!
