Young Leader Council Members Volunteer with Philabundance

Seven Philadelphia Young Leaders got together on June 12th for a fun evening of meat-sorting for a good cause at the Philabundance hunger relief warehouse.  They worked together to frantically pack 30 pound boxes of frozen poultry, pork, and even quail off a fast-moving conveyor built, packing 9,000 pounds in all!
