Paul Hughes with the Hospitality House shared this shot of a volunteer work party involved in collecting scrap metal. Our favorite project was this one from Wenatchee High School.

Students in Doug Merrill’s engineering class are modifying cars for preschoolers with limited mobility through the Go Baby Go program. This is three-year-old Francisco Garibay who traded in his wheelchair for these hot-wheels which were outfitted with hand controls. Francisco has cerebral palsy and a serious need for speed!
