The Middle School I am doing City Year is in Hunts Point, a neighborhood in the South Bronx. Today we served at a Back to School Fair for the families of Hunts Point. I have never been to a "fair" like it before. It was unique... to say the least. I ran the binder building station for most of the time. It was a joy to see some of the students at the fair. It was also meaningful to meet the parents and other leaders in the Hunts Point. The fair was definitely a success. Families received school supplies, a meal, and had lots of fun!
