Instrumental in the establishment of a culturally sensitive food bank that has allowed mutual education.
We couldn’t achieve what we have achieved here at Waymakers without the help of our Community Partners. Thanks to the community partnerships we are able to implement programs that are mutually beneficial to our communities and partners. Programs like food distribution through our food bank, cultural engagement events like “Pintando con Papa”, health and wellbeing programs like providing covid-19 resources such as masks and cleaning products, and educational programs like STEM.
