Every pair grabbed a pen and clipboard with flyers and a chart demonstrating what Maryvale pocket they have been assigned to. 

They each and every established out by 9:30 a.m., with some driving to their respective areas even further away while other folks, which includes Pam Poley, 69, and Leticia Lowry-Garcilazo, 26, walked the couple blocks to their assignment.
