Debbie Amico and I are doing the WINK walk in Jan. We've been working with a food pantry who helps AIDS/HIV patients. They don't get enough with food stamps for their families to survive. CHAPS supplements the food and hygiene needs so they can spend their $$ on medicine.
Talk with Debbie - she takes a blind man and his 9 yr old daughter shopping. His mom is in the hospital with stage 4 cancer and can no longer help her son and grand daughter. We help him with what we can. Deb goes to the homes of the clients who can not drive and drops off food. Once she took my old ceiling fans with her to a client with no AC or fans. Donations of household and clean clothes help too.
The WINK walk is coming up in January. Harry Chapin Food Pantry is fantastic. If you donate through the HCFP on behalf of CHAPs, we get the buying power of 6! For every $1 we collect, we can buy $6 worth of food. We need contributors and walkers!
It is on the meetup calendar as a note, so email me if you are interested in walking, we will set you up to walk with us! See the link below if you can donate - even $5 helps and it's secure through paypal.
If I don't see you at the music walk this weekend, have a wonderful holiday!
