My first stop of the day was at the Bi-Lo near my house to “rescue” some delicious looking baked goods: pies, cakes, cup cakes and a various assortment of breads. I love the expression “rescuing food,” probably because I LOVE food and the thought that I was saving food for someone else to enjoy is satisfying. It took mere minutes to take the grocery cart of goodies and load it into my van, then I was off to the Greer Soup Kitchen, where I found a busy kitchen prepping lunch. (more…)
I’ll be starting my Leap Day “rescuing” food from a Taylors grocery store
and delivering it to a Greer Soup kitchen working with the folks at
Loaves and Fishes of Greenville. http://www.loavesandfishesgreenville.com/
And I’ll close out my Leap Day with my mom serving dinner at the Greenville Rescue Mission.
Let’s hear how you will be spending a couple of those bonus hours on Feb. 29th. I know Jason is planning to help out at the Human Society. With one week left, we are still a little shy of our 100 people goal, so join us and let us know what you are planning. Now, we realize that you may not have time on a Wednesday, so could always volunteer this Saturday instead. Either way, let’s help others!
Interview with the Project Coordinator for Hands on Greenville, Brooke Jones, about the myriad of volunteer opportunities they offer. They are a great place to look for something to do on Leap Day.
We shed light on the so-called “war on religion” that the Right has labeled the Administration’s implementation of part of the Affordable Care Act. Adding contraceptives and sterilization to the list of preventative measures that employers must cover if they provide insurance for their employees has Catholics up in arms; allowing partisans on the Right to claim there is a war on religion.
