It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.
Recently I came across an article talking about how our local cemetery is needing to be brought back up. There are some problems with grave markers not being set correctly, sidewalks cracking, and weeds. I am sure there are other problems too but these were the first three that caught my eye.
The new interim manager, Emily Helm, is asking for people to come out and volunteer to adopt a row of weeding. Now I know Emily and she is a hard worker and understands why this needs to be done.
So what I am asking you is if this is something us crafters want to do? Do we want to adopt a row? Do we want to bring our gloves and our hats and get to pulling some weeds? Please let me know so I can contact Emily to get the ball rolling.
It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. I have been approached by a dear friend, mentor, and fellow crafter. Lori is President of the Board for the 29 Palms Community Food Pantry. Currently the Food Pantry is holding not one, but two, fundraisers. So here are the details for each.
The first fundraiser is a night of Bingo at the Elks Lodge here in 29 Palms on Friday, February 15. Would you like to go with me and have some fun? There will be stamping (hopefully a blackout) and prizes!
The second fundraiser is less expensive and it is not an event. If you would like to purchase tickets for a chance to win this quilt please let me know.
The quilt was handmade by Susan Lunn and donated for this drawing. It is approximately 4’X4′. Tickets are 6 for $5. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Board Meeting on February 25.
All proceeds go to the 29 Palms Community Food Pantry. If you have any questions or would like to purchase tickets for either of these fundraisers please contact me.
I love when my fellow crafters make it so easy to give back. If you are a Red Door Crafter and involved with an organization that would like to be featured on Friendship Friday please contact me. I am always looking for new ways to give back and encouraging you to get involved. Our ripples become waves.
It’s Friendship Friday and today is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. I know during the holidays it is easy to give back. People almost expect it. But now it’s time for New Year’s Resolutions and to build the savings account back up. So I will ask you how do you give back when it is not obvious?
I know there is always a need for volunteers in several places. Here’s just a few locally…
