Sandwich-Making and Packing for CHiPS

23 of our BESTY Jr. kids got together to make bagged lunches for ChiPS! Since 1971, CHiPS has been supported the community helping to prepare hot, nutritious meals and serve them to the hungry in a caring and respectful environment. We bagged over 200 lunches with sandwiches, a snack, and a beverage. It is great to see what the kids can accomplish when they do it together!
