As with everything in life, consistency is the key to success. We learned that lesson as children when we read the story about the Tortoise and the Hare. We’re proving it again as adults with our One Can A Week neighborhood food donation program. Last year we collected over 9,200 lbs. of food. We are only half way through 2010 and our total so far is 7,452.5 lbs. In addition, we are influencing others to get involved in helping the Community Food Bank like the kids at the Los Amigos Elementary School who gave us 122 lbs. of food this week.
We are very proud of our neighbors because you are really keeping up the good work.

Because We Care
“really ugly” the kids thought so they decorated them with lots of cutout art to hide the fact that the boxes were just boxes. During the process, Mrs. Merza asked the students why they were getting so involved in the project and they said, without prompting, “Because we care.”
One Can A Week was such a positive experience for both the teachers and their students that they are considering getting the whole school involved with the Community Food Bank and its community outreach programs. That, I can tell you, will be good for everyone.
Powerful End to the Quarter
See you Sunday,
