A true community event at the Filipino-American Community Hall, bringing together about 125 people from 90 different nonprofits. They stuffed 14,000 envelopes for the One Call For All annual Red Envelope Campaign, an island tradition for several decades. Breakfast donations from Bainbridge Bakers, Blackbird Bakery, The Boathouse and Town and Country provided fuel for the volunteers.
