Reflection on past events:

Thank you all to everyone who came out to our very first ever Clothing Swap Party! A special shout out to Ashley for letting us use her home. We saw several new faces to the VISTA space who contributed to the vast amount of clothing, shoes, and accessories. At the end of the event, we were able to donate the remainder of the items to Goodwill. We hope to see more of these events in the future!

November is a big month for many of us! Roughly half of our cohort will be leaving us this month as it is their end of service. We have several exciting events coming up this month so save the dates on your calendar.
