Self Care & support systems are extremely important... especially for care givers. And VOAF team members are some of the most caring givers around. So it's wonderful when they take time to care for themselves and get together as a team! Check out the Hillsborough Team doing just that on their recent team trip to the local Strawberry Festival. What an awesome lookin' group, right?! 😉
Thank you Hillsborough & VOAF team members state-wide for all that you do, including taking care of one another. 💕
