President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama attend the United We Serve volunteer event at the Fort McNair fitness center on Thursday (June 25) in Washington, D.C.
Michelle, 45, spoke at the event that loaded 15,000 backpacks with books, healthy snacks and toys for children of the men and women of the armed forces.
“Economic recovery is as much about what you’re doing in your communities as what we’re doing here in Washington – and it’s going to take all of us, working together,” the First Lady says in a video message on Serve.gov. “So, wherever your interests lie – whether it’s working with young people or caring for the sick and elderly in our hospitals, or helping to make the homes in your neighborhood more energy efficient – or any other issue, the most important thing is for you to get involved.”
