Ashley Halverson '20 and her family spent time recently delivering hundreds of pizzas from their family's frozen food company to area non-profits and shelters in our community.
Community partnership is a foundational aspect of Breck. In reflecting on the experience, Ashely shared: "Just a small effort of delivering food to local shelters, provided me with the opportunity to help those in need during this crisis. It is people like James, a volunteer at Sharing and Caring Hands, that is making a true difference during this time. I’m am blessed to give back to a community that has given others so much."
