Mr. Ahern and his Community Explorers have not let COVID-19 restrictions halt their community exploration!
Due to COVID-19, the Community Explorers are unable to make their monthly volunteer trips to their local food bank. Instead, they brought the food bank to them!
Mr. Ahern reached out to the St. Vincent De Paul dining room in Downtown Phoenix to see how they could help serve the needy of Downtown Phoenix.
St. Vincent de Paul volunteer coordinators found the perfect job for the Community Explorers. 
The dining room no longer allows their clients to pour their own sugar and creamer for the coffee they receive. The sugar, creamer, and a stirring straw is handed out in a zip lock bag.
The dining room could not keep up with the demand of creating these bags. So the Community Explorers have taken on the task.
Since the beginning of September, they have put together close to 4,000 bags for the dining room.
The goal for the Community Explorers is to put together 20,000 by May!
