Our Day of Service at YouthCare

On Tuesday, the TisBest staff participated in a day of service.  We planned, purchased, and prepared lunch at the Orion Center.  The Orion Center is run by YouthCare, a Seattle organization that helps transition homeless kids off the streets and into school, jobs, and success.  YouthCare is our newest charity partner, and the more we learn about them the more we admire their work.  

Our staff fixed burritos and brownies for 40-60 teenagers.  It was a big job for a group that usually spends their work days on computers or in meetings, but the challenge was incredibly rewarding!  Here are some photos of us hard at work in the kitchen.

We felt great about spending an afternoon for such
an amazing cause, and a truly worthy organization!
