Young Professionals Clean Up Mission Benedicts Garden
Our Catholic Community Services (CCS) Young Professionals group hosted a volunteer opportunity for all ages at Mission Benedict’s Community Garden in Mt. Angel. Thanks to their help, Mission Benedict now has loads of fresh vegetables for those in need who access its food bank, and the garden is ready for replanting this spring!
