This weekend, our office was full of families as our parents attented our landlord workshop from Michael Maupin. Kids played with student volunteers from West Chester University and made Thanksgiving cranberry relish for their moms. WCU students also helped us organize and distribute new winter coats for the kids and Thanksgiving dinners, complete with frozen turkeys, to all families in attendance.
