On December 7th, 2019, our team took on the challenge of setting up a booth at the De Anza College (DASB) Flea Market, a flea market held by the students with goals to raise money for the student body. For over forty years, it has been a monthly established community event with vendors and patrons coming from all over the state. We were honored to have stumbled upon the opportunity to share some products and our mission to a larger audience.

Most significantly, they bring together the community.
