Last week I hosted a Christmas party at my house. I asked each of my guests to bring something to donate to the Evergreen Christian Outreach Food Bank.
What I discovered is that we live in an incredibly generous community.
Instead a can of this or that...My guests brought bags. And bags. Of wonderful quality food that anyone would be proud to have in their pantry.
You may remember that I said I'd put up multiple Christmas trees around the house.
They were soon crowded with bags of donated food.
It was a wonderful evening. Good food, nice wine, great conversation with some terrific new friends. The evening was such a success that we've decided to make it an annual event.
The following afternoon, volunteers from the Food Bank came to our house and picked every bit up and took it away where it will become part of the larger Food Bank Pantry.
What a great little town we live in!
