This was an exciting opportunity to participate in CAN during the time of pandemic. We were helping people with basic needs, and making sure that none of our black child in community will go to bed on a empty stomach. While we were facing that somewhere experiencing fires that they could help and others were evicted and we were working with them throughout.
