What community-building goals did you accomplish or milestones did you hit in 2019? (<500 characters)

For 2019, I was able to accomplish holding our first community clothes winter drive with a local business allowing us to host the event in their establishment. One of my goals was to volunteer at more community events in 2019 that provide assistance to those in need. Feeding the homeless and families at the annual Break Bread event, scarf bombing which entailed tying scarfs around trees and poles in Downtown Hartford for those in need, and building relationships with other community organization to make a greater impact on engaging our youth in our community.
