Northwest Harvest called me on Monday absolutely astonished. They hadn’t expected as much. They only sent one poor driver because the typical event usually collects a tenth as much food. A tenth. One or two of their boxes, he said. This poor guy (and a few of our guys—thanks Walt!) got nearly a TON of food onto his truck. And they didn’t even know about the cash donations, some of which we are donating to the church for giving us the space for free.
On this day after Thanksgiving I am thankful for all my fellow bloggers and volunteers who made this such a rousing success. And I am also thankful for The Fabulous Jennys for both having the heart and soul and caring spirit to put this Bake Sale together . Peace and Love and Happy Holidays to my fellow bloggers for a job well done! Can't wait until next year.
