This morning half of our group spend their time serving at Faith Center. We helped sort men’s and women's clothes and put them out for people to shop. We also helped put out bags for people to put their clothes in after they finished shopping. We then helped people pick out groceries to take back home to their families. We served approximately 13 families today! It was an awesome experience to give back to the community of Houston!
