Earlier today, we held a planning session for the various group activities. Such a session gives the faculty and student organizers time to meet with the group of volunteers and communicate the need for the service activity and the expectations for the day.  It also gives groups time to organize the necessary collection of supplies (e.g., peanut butter and jelly, cereal, personal goods) needed for the activities.
