“The River Place Emergency Meals Team is full of positive thinkers! They create a sense of togetherness even though they are six feet away from their students, families and community. They believe in creating a positive student experience by greeting families with happy voices and waving arms, smiling under their personal protective equipment!

I loved spending time at River Place. While they could not physically work next to one another, they were always closely communicating. They were laughing, sharing life stories, and singing happy birthday to students. They were a team of 7 from different campuses, but you would have thought they were best friends working together!”
