A group of youths who hang out at The HUB gave back to the community that funded their after school program.

Earlier this month, HUB youths volunteered at the Good Cheer Food Bank, which supplies the nonprofit organization with food and snacks. HUB kids dug up onions and strawberry plants, shoveled soil and compost together and filled the planting bed with more soil, then replanted the strawberries in less than an hour.

“The kids literally got their hands dirty and had a lot of fun in the process,” said Frankie Petitclerc, The HUB’s program manager.
