Colleagues in Vermont drive over 300 miles roundtrip to pick up, safely pack, and drop off the Archbishop for shipment to Berkeley. They packed quickly to beat the upcoming winter storm!


Dr. Elizabeth S. Peña (CARe Director) picks up the shipment in the Port of Oakland. The Archbishop has arrived safe and sound.
