Pumpkins Distribution

Again, thanks to Braga Fresh for the donations of literally thousands of pumpkins to distribute to our students and their families. During the week of October 19-23, every single school had pumpkins on hand to distribute to their students. Check out the pictures! What a great gesture from Braga Fresh! Especial thanks to Colby Pereira, Vice-President of Operations and our marvelous MOTF Staff and school staff for helping out!
