Tuesday:) Toni’s Terrific Generous Friends

We had the pleasure of attending a fundraising gala a couple of weeks ago for Holy Family School. Linda Grossman, (World’s Greatest Realtor) sponsored a table and invited nine friends to attend. There was a silent auction and other raffle opportunities, but my favorite part were the speeches by people who were involved in keeping the school going all these years. Some had heartwarming stories of how the school lovingly cared for their children when they needed a safe place for their young children while they had to work. Now, they are paying it forward. The private Christian school is able to keep its moderate tuition affordable through generous support, donations, scholarships, and grants.

Last week, I stopped at the school with a couple of bags of items, peanut butter and baby wipes, etc. When I asked the director what else they could use, there were many items, including granola bars. So, when I saw that Kroger had Quaker granola bars were on sale, I mentioned it to a few friends. The response was wonderful.

Thank you Linda P., Pat, Helene, June, and Loretta.

Sherri and Linda G. have some more that they will get to me later this week. I can’t wait to take the bags of donations over to the school. I know they will be pleasantly surprised and appreciative.

I am blessed with the greatest, most wonderful and generous friends.
