I love being involved in EP because it is a positive and safe sanctuary in the middle of a poor neighborhood where kids can play, learn and eat healthy meals in a safe and positive environment.  I’m inspired by the passion of its staff and volunteers, and that I can see kids learning and becoming healthy and confident before my eyes.
