As the holidays are approaching “The Heart of North Bend” will be collecting and promoting the sharing of canned goods and other food items with our local food banks! I know that the holiday hustle and bustle has already begun in our home… literally I had to do a double take when I realized on Monday that Thanksgiving was next week! As I thumbed through cookbooks and planned all of the delicious food that we will share with family, I reveled in the closeness that our loved ones will provide around the dinner table. While making my shopping list, I was reminded that holidays can be hard and often lack cheer for those in need.
This week I also came across this little clip on Goalcast. Here is the link, it is only 4 minutes and well worth it! My take away from the video clip was “Your life is not about you, it is about all the people around you.” That reminder came at the perfect time for me, with the holidays nearing our hearts are full and it is a great time to share the love. So this post is just a quick reminder that our food banks can always use more food, especially at this time of year. Below are the addresses to two local food banks. If you are feeling super busy, I am happy to pick food up at your door and deliver, just shoot me a text 714-655-0595. It fills my heart to see groups, schools and neighborhoods collecting for those in need.
Have a great weekend and stay tuned for holiday happenings in North Bend, the surprise small business that I will feature next week and my run and interview with North Bend Beer runners on the 29th (they are also doing a food drive collection:)!
