Tuesday:) Take A Little Time To Share

25 Jul

“When you’re surrounded by people who share a passionate commitment around a common purpose, anything is possible.”

~Howard Schultz

I never run out of reasons to extol the praises of our wonderful community here in McKinney. A couple of weeks ago, a friend posted on Facebook that the little food pantry box in front of The Art House had been very low on donations. The box relies on friends and neighbors dropping off food and supplies for those in need. It works on the honor system. “Take what you need. Give what you can.”

When I go shopping, I always keep an eye out for some good sales or specials. Usually canned goods are a good value, and they hold up well in all kinds of weather. When I arrived, the little box was pretty low. I try and stop by with a few things whenever I’m over by the Square. I have been blessed with more than enough in my pantry, so why not share with those not as fortunate.

My meager contribution wasn’t much, but hopefully it helped out a little. I even remembered to take some extra plastic bags to carry items home.

If you happen to be in the area and have a few food items to share, I know it will be greatly appreciated.

If many people share just a little, well, that adds up to a lot.
