Photo Contest Winner #1: Tiffany TubbyTiffany Tubby, an AmeriCorps Member with the Little Sisters of the Assumption Family Health Services, reads to a young child at a local Children’s Book drive she helped organize for the East Harlem Community.
“The most rewarding parts of this year includes interacting with people who remember my name on the streets after I had spoken with them for only minutes, teaching and tutoring the children who gave me a big hug when they saw me, and communicating with a family using body gestures when words would not suffice. It was a blessing to see love inside such painful and dark circumstances.”
