Our teenage daughter loves to go on the yearly mission trips with the youth group at church…….helping strangers in need with painting, repairing porches, building handicap ramps, or clearing brush and trash from their properties. The gratitude these poor people show always moves the kids to tears. CAC is like that — only it’s kind of a surprise mission trip, not planned months in advance. We have to deploy relatively quickly with food, water, hygiene kits and cleaning supplies after a natural disaster turns our fellow citizens’ world upside down. I consider it a blessing to be able to serve others, and being associated with the tireless and dedicated volunteers at CAC is an honor.
