Save the Children invited the community to come together to meet XOCHI, its beautiful bus and the newest addition to Keppel. Families from all over our district came by to say "Hi" and received resources from Antelope Valley Partners for Health, L.A. Care, and SBCC. Participants had a blast trying fun activities that were connected to STEM career books and searching high and low for eggs during an outdoor hunt.
