    I saw lots of pictures bring taken. Could anyone who took pictures please post those so I can grab one or two. I wanted to get a few, but completely got sidetracked with everything. Guess that's a good thing!

    Thank you all for a great educational yet emotional experience. The community we served today is extremely appreciative for every single item we handed out.

    As a war time Iraqi veteran, I can count on one hand how many times any citizen has told me thank you. No hard feelings and I am ok with that. What touched my heart today is when a homeless gentleman in the crowd called my name and said "Thank you for the pair of pants." He had the greatest smile on his face as he turned and walked away. That my friends is what I call being grateful! Once again, thank you all and I hope to see everyone next month.

    Would my children be welcome to join us? 7 & 10 years. I would like to bring at least my eldest to help! We've also been making scarves we would like to pass out this weekend.

      I have about 30 fleece scarves my children helped make to pass out tomorrow. If anyone wants to help with the purchase of fleece to make more scarves, Wal-Mart has some fleece around $2-3 a yard. I can get 3 scarves out of a yard. Anyone willing to help can drop it off with us tomorrow and is more than welcome to join us to hand them out after we make them. I'm looking for a good pattern for fleece hats/beanies, too. Looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow! Not looking forward to the cold...
