Corporate Alliance Hosts First Social Service Reconnect at Habitat ReStore

Members of Corporate Alliance volunteered their time on Thursday at Habitat's Spanish Fork ReStore as part of the networking group's first ever Social Service Reconnect. Volunteers networked together as they did various projects at the ReStore. We had originally planned to have the volunteers work at our TyeRay Community Garden in Provo but due to rainy and cold weather, we moved to the store. We appreciate Corporate Alliance's continued support of our local mission.
