Compassion Week, an annual event that encourages local residents to volunteer in their communities, began Saturday. The event gives residents a chance to get involved with over 120 remote and in-person service projects — including assembling care packages, writing cards for veterans and beach cleanups — from Oct. 15 to Oct. 23.
Here’s the event kickoff, captured by our photographer.
