My beautiful granddaughter Hannah, is turning 1. In lieu of the typical first birthday party, my daughter has decided that Hannah is so fortunate to have a home, a loving family, clothes, toys, and food to eat, that her first birthday will be in honor of City Light Home for Women and Children. It's a wonderful program for our city's most vulnerable citizens - homeless women and their children.
I'm really excited! I've bought some socks, hats and gloves, toys and a few other things for the kids. I'm going through my pantry today to pick out some food to take and will soon hit my closet to see if there may be a few things in there that I can take (I know how laughable this thought is to some of you!). I'm also going to see if my boss will let me set a cash donation box up at the Merc to help out.
What a great way to spend a day, and what a great feeling everyone will have for having done something good for those who need a hand up in these hard times. Thanks Jack, for doing something so wonderful to help so many. You always make me proud.
Happy first birthday Hannah Dee!
