10 Day Give Day 8
After the meal we ran back home to change (good thing we live only a few blocks away) and went back to church for the CROP Hunger Walk. The CROP Walk's message is to "End Hunger One Step at a Time". We met at our churchwith about 20 other locals for a welcome and prayer and then walked over to our high school track for a 1 hour walk. Pledges will be donated and 25% will come back to our local Food Pantry. Last year our food pantry received over $800. That goes a long way towards helping families in our community. Our whole family was happy to be able to donate and walk for hunger today. Have you noticed a theme during this 10-Day Give time? I really have a passion for helping those who are hungry and needy!
This afternoon I spent about 3 hours, yes, 3 hours with our daughter cleaning out and organizing her room. I didn't even get to the clothes yet. This was just the toys. Oh my it was a J-O-B! But, her room is now all organized and cleaned out. One bag of garbage was taken out as well as one bag for donation. Ugh! One of these nights or maybe next weekend I need to go through her clothes and get the winter clothes out. As much as I don't want to admit it, colder weather is coming. I hope our daughter appreciates her clean and organized room and keeps it that way for awhile.
