#TBT: A thankful reflection

On November 19 the Kathy Crow Commons (KCC) Student Director, Lilly Chapman, led a group of KCC residents to the Hatcher Farms station in South Dallas to serve with Restorative Farms.

The group helped hand pick vegetables to pack in Thanksgiving meals packages that would be passed out to the local community for the upcoming holiday. Chapman shared that “this was impactful because it allowed me to realize the effect a little bit of TLC has on a community. These meals mattered to the community. While we were packing the bags, community members were still coming to sign up to receive Thanksgiving meals. It was nice to see something good happening in the community, versus the bad the media always presents.”
