It's never too late to learn! Check out some of the residents living in the #VOAFL Puerta del Sol elderly housing program. In the month of October they celebrated their one year anniversary of providing senior English classes! Thanks to an amazing partnership with Miami-Dade County School Board, a teacher and supplies were provided! Residents are very happy with the classes and community members are welcome to the program as well!

Thanks to the support of The Home Depot, Penney Retirement Community and many individual donors the Home Depot mobile unit made a trip to Blountstown, Florida to drop off many needed supplies to distribute to those affected by Hurricane Michael. Shout out to everyone involved that put this together so quickly. We are blessed that our #VOAFL
