For my last post about AFYA, I thought it was fitting to go to the warehouse in Yonkers.

In her wisdom, Danielle finds people from different walks of life to take part in AFYA’s mission. Many live in the margins where working at AFYA means giving them a skill, experience and an opportunity to perform community service.
