Default Why I do what I do......

So I just dropped off about 15 file boxes full of everything from canned vegetables and cereal to HBA to the local food bank.

Since this is the first time I have donated to this specific one, they had no idea what I meant when I walked in and said that I had a donation to give. As I and one of the volunteers made multiple trips to and from the car, their eyes just got bigger and bigger as the stack of boxes grew. At one point I was asked, "What organization are you from?". When I responded that no, I am not from an organization, this is just from my home. They were amazed. It feels so good to give back, and to know that I am making an impact on many people/families lives.

This is why I do what I do.........

Just thought I would share the great morning I had.

Shawn

I personally love reading stories like this - It is very inspiring and I love to see Wuckies showing what an awesome community we are. I am also a visual person and love seeing pictures! I hope that good feeling stays with you for a long time!
