    Hi Debbie,
    Won't be there today - I'm not quite over an intestinal bug from earlier in the week.
    Sorry for the late notice.

    Great to see new and familiar faces. Everyone worked so hard, the outcome was very positive. Together, we repacked 8,300 pounds of Costco products in 3 hours providing over 5,000 meals and countless goods!
