This year, Rox has launched a program called Service Rox. The overall program is for the good of our clients, our friends and our community. This section is dedicated to our quarterly philanthropic adventures. Each quarter, we put a team of 3 together to plan a community service event and this quarter, we served, and I mean SERVED, on January 21, MLK Day. The lot of us hauled our buns down to the Volunteer Center Orange County in Garden Grove and packed food boxes for the hungry. Now, many of us had never done this type of service before, so packing food boxes didn’t sound too difficult, but I am here to tell you that we got whooped and it felt good, mind, body and soul. It was hard work and well worth it. Our line packed nearly 1,200 food boxes that day, more than double the other food lines during our shift, time well spent. I highly recommend that everybody give community service a try, you’ll want to do it again and again.
