Join us for a unique event at the Southwest Youth and Family Services, an organization that works to remove barriers to our community’s success and sustainability caused by systemic and economic inequities. Emerging Leaders will be working at the Community Baby Shower, a unique event where families receive gifts of new and gently used clothing and other essentials for kiddos. Volunteers would be helping with food, games and clean up.
