- Foraged in the City of Reading with Big Brothers Big Sisters Club of Unmatched Littles (COUL) kids in a foraging adventure led by ELU Cabinet member Amanda Funk, Director of The Widoktadwen Center of Native Knowledge.
- Learned about the importance of ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) members in our community in a virtual session led by United Way’s Community Impact Assistant Director, Kristin Gehris.
