February recap

February has been a busy month!

Our very own Chanel is now engaged! You go girl!

Marcos and Rasheed prank called Alison

Teresa helped Sarah with her copious amounts of paperwork

Alison and Sharay gave everyone neon manicures in anticipation of the coming warm weather. Alison is diligently working on Tyree's nails and Maggie is showing off her hot pink digits.

Karaoke club rocked the house! Floyd sang some motown favorites, Marcos and Richard did a Michael Jackson duet, and Ashley melted our hearts with a Mariah Carey classic.

Mike G. and Emily started the construction of a reading nook to display our art books at the upcoming Cultural Arts exhibition at Chestnut Hill College in March. Here Charlene, Sandy, George and Emily prime the soon-to-be book shelves!

The Life Aquatic

We made a second trip to the Camden Aquarium for those that could not make it the first time around. Rasheed snapped some great pictures of the mystical under water flora and fauna!

Volunteering with SHARE Food

Members of the Cultural Arts program have been giving back to the community by volunteering with SHARE Food. The SHARE Food Program is a nonprofit organization serving a regional network of community organizations engaged in food distribution, education, and advocacy. SHARE promotes healthy living by providing affordable wholesome food to those willing to contribute through volunteerism.

George and Myron package food that will be distributed to families that need it.

Rasheed has volunteered with SHARE in the past. He is pictured with one of his old friends.

Richard and Rasheed fill up bags for distribution.
