Junior Optimists of Canyon Crest Academy volunteer at San Diego Food Bank
Nine members of the Canyon Crest Academy Junior Optimist International (JOI) Club got the opportunity to return to the San Diego Food Bank April 23 for a group volunteer shift. Safety protocols in the spacious warehouse enabled the volunteer group to work in a socially-distanced but closely connected environment. The CCA JOI Club’s evening task involved sorting and bagging fresh fruit and vegetables, specifically apples, oranges, onions, and potatoes. In total, the shift prepared 5,900 pounds of produce bags for distribution within the community.
The Junior Optimist International Clubs at Canyon Crest Academy and Carmel Valley Middle School are sponsored by the Del Mar – Solana Beach Optimist Club. For more information on Junior Optimist Clubs visit the optimist.org.
