Hoodies for the Homeless & Thank you notes

Since we are officially in the season of Thanksgiving, I’d like to share with you 2 opportunities to show kindness and thanks.

One is very close to my 11 year old son’s heart and the other to mine.

Hoodies for the Homeless
My son will be having a Hoodies for the Homeless clothing drive. More details are in his letter below:

Hi, my name is Corey. I’m Mrs. Nora’s son. Last year for Thanksgiving we volunteered for Hosiah Feeds the Hungry and helped with the clothing. We heard many times “are there any hoodies?”. We ran out quick. Someone has to take responsibility. I’m taking up the task with Hoodies for the Homeless. You can drop off any Wednesday pick up day between now and 11/21 (Wed before Thanksgiving). There will be a designated spot inside the pick up area where hoodies can be dropped off.

My hope is that nobody is cold this Thanksgiving. So if you could drop off any hoodies – Large, medium, or small, used or new that would be great.
Thanks :-)

If you have any questions just let me know. This is not a formal charity, just something he wants to do to help others. We’ll collect the hoodies and deliver Thanksgiving Day to Hosea Helps in Atlanta.

Thank you Notes to Farmers/Vendors
I have lots of scrap paper and have been thinking up ways to upcycle. Thank You notes/cards came to mind! I will have an area at pick up every Wednesday until 11/21 for you to write a little note of thanks to a farmer or vendor and drop in marked box. I’ll have a list of Farmers/Vendors with Names and products so you’ll know who to make it out to. I’ve wanted to do this for awhile and think it’s a small way we can let the farmers/vendors know how much we appreciate what they do for us!

Thank you!!
Nora & Corey
