Behind the Scenes: FOW provide Company & FESTIVAL Support
Team Chariot team members brought company members to Winona from area airports in early May. Early Housing team members hosted 35 GRSF company members who stayed in family homes before they moved into the WSU’s East Lake apartments. Move in/Move team members assisted with moving bins of apartment supplies from the Johnson St. warehouse to the East Lake. Photos: Maggie Lambert and other FOW helped Company Manager Pete Suardi inventory and pack bins of kitchen necessities for company apartments. Kudos and Thank You to FOW and Exchange Club members who helped with a bulk mailing project. The volunteer hours saved GRSF $700.00!
