Sponsored by the Gifford Youth Achievement Center (GYAC), “Unity in the Community” was a beautiful event. Billed as “a gathering of community organizations and resources to benefit the community by providing nourishment for mind, body, and soul” this event brought together approximately 75 youth and 150 adults. We were honored to have a presence at Unity in the Community alongside other organizations doing incredible work in Gifford and throughout IRC. The SAFIR tent was the place to be thanks to games, lollipops, and great conversations with many parents and families. Throughout our day, we encountered several families who had lost someone due to alcohol abuse. We listened, learned, and shared each other’s passion for a safer, cleaner community.
