Giving Tuesday

In the spirit of the season and giving back to the community, I and several of my coworkers went to the Pike Place Market Food Bank to volunteer our time. We spent several hours sorting food, gathering donations from local shops, bagging personal hygiene items, passing out food, and general cleaning and tidying. It was fantastic! The Food Bank serves roughly 300 people, twice a week. Everything gets weighed and sorted.

I will totally do this again. It was a very rewarding experience!

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
