Fare for All

I was in charge of my school's holiday help program again this year. I was the point person but we were a strong team of four that contacted the 85 families to come to Anoka's Fare for All event for holiday food. We focus on food because we realize kids will be home for 2 weeks without school lunches. Hopefully, this helps to stretch those holiday dollars.

Thanks to our faith partner each family went home with boxes of frozen meat, a box of produce, a box of dairy (milk, oj, eggs, butter), and then two walmart bags of nonperishables. We headed up a team of CRMS volunteers to help families with their vouchers, through the line, and then carry all the items to their cars. It was a busy, fast paced two hours!

 

 

It feels like a lot of work but I'm always glad to start the holidays giving to these families.

 

 

Sneaky: December 18

I wasn't feeling well one night so I asked Jim to make sure Sneaky moved.

 

I guess Sneaky wants to be a shark too!

I think this Crunch bar gift was a bigger hit than some of the other nights!

True Star Wars fans may point out that the Wampa beast doesn't use fire, preferring its meal fresh and icy cold. Oh well.

It took me a frustrating ten minutes to rig up the fire spit but I got it done!
