On December 1, First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. kicked off its 32 day First Fruits/Kwanzaa season with the Kwanzaa Appreciation Program. In the month of November (Constructive Action Month), the members and students were encouraged to just purchase essential (must-have) items. On December 1, we donated a portion of the money we saved by avoiding non-essential items/services to the Institute. Minister Evans and the adults did libation where we honored heroes and sheroes from the diaspora. The children blew the candles.
