Thanksgiving may be behind us and yummy leftovers a distant memory…but we’re still excited to be hearing stories from Great Turkey Countdown volunteers about their experiences and the many Thank Yous from neighbors receiving the extra bounty during this season of generosity.
We heard this week from a recently single Mom of 3 in Monroe that the Thanksgiving feast was a surprise blessing because her neighbor had signed her up after hearing her share some recent struggles (how kind!). The volunteer who delivered to the family shared that they were even able to help get Christmas decorations down from the attic for her. (That’s a hard task to attempt with 3 little ones!).
It’s stories like these that remind us what this “small revolution of kindness” is all about! Volunteers and friends always willing to help, and many times go the “extra mile” when they see a need. It’s the rising tide of compassion & kindness in our community.
As we journey together in this season of giving, let’s remember to be kind and show compassion. If you would like to deliver groceries once/month to families challenged by food insecurity, we have open spots for Cupboard Ally volunteers! For details and more information, call Riane Brownlee at 704-218-9060 ext. 1017 or email CupboardAlly@CommonHeart.org.
