My husband and I volunteer weekly at a local charity called Granny's House (www.grannyshouse.org). Every summer they take 35-40 inner city kids to KAA camp (http://www.kidsacrossamerica.org/#) and they ask local groups to donate certain camp supplies. For months leading up to camp the kids of Granny's House work for points which they then spend in the camp store that they set up with the donated items. This year I was asked to get a group to donate bath towels.....80 to be exact. I decided to put together a ice cream social at my house and ask neighbors and friends to come out, donate towels, and get some ice cream. My wonderful neighbors and friends showed up in full force and we raised our goal of 80 towels, plus! I am still fielding emails from neighbors who want to know if it is too late to drop off towels.......needless to say I live in a great community! Here are some pictures:
And now some pictures of the people who made the event a success:
Thanks to all the people who braved the heat, and who donated towels to support a great cause!
