WOW what a day!

The end of the month is always a busy time at Community Harvest but today was record setting. It is humbling to see how many people show up for free food. They gave away food to nearly 1000 families. We came armed with more books than usual. We gave away 210 and put an additional 125 for the bookshelf inside. We definitely met some cuties.

Chapel Oaks Back to School event

I got to be a part of a really cool event last week. Chapel Oaks apartment complex hosted a back to school celebration. They handed out free school supplies, clothing, hot dog dinners and books of course!

They had a horse drawn buggy giving rides to all the kids too.

See the sweet guy on the right in the orange shirt? He was my personal assistant all day. He walked up about 10 minutes after I got there and told me he was going to help me. What a great kid and a born salesman!

The fire department even came by with a special treat for the kids on a very warm day!

In total we gave away over 70 books and met some great people in the process.
