Giving Back.

It's already December?! Oh-Em-Geee!

Hopefully you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday, whether you were with family, friends, alone, or volunteering. My holiday time started the Saturday before Thanksgiving when I joined several friends and their church to deliver Thanksgiving box meals to families in need. It's really a great thing the church is doing! Donations are made in the weeks prior to that Saturday of non-parishable Thanksgiving meal items and frozen turkeys are kept as well. Everything is put into boxes based on the number of people in the family. Essentially, each family will receive a turkey, 1-2 bags of rolls (depending on the number of people in the family) and then canned veggies (ex: green beans, corn, cranberry sauce etc), a bag of potatoes, and 1-2 frozen pies (again depending on the number of family members). This year, the church had an excellent turnout in both donations of food and delivery drivers! It was great! I hope the church is able to keep this tradition alive and continue to increase the volume as well. :)

On Thanksgiving day, my sister and I made quite a bit of food and took it up to the station so the officers who were on duty could have Thanksgiving dinner too.  They really appreciated it, and I'm sure it was much better than the drive-thru or whatever they were planning on eating during their shift ;)

Let's try to remember to give back what we can this holiday season, even if it's in donations of time or goods! Hope your holiday season is off to a great start!!
