Starting the Holiday season of 2007, I met some new friends at a Levittown Kiwanis meeting. They were getting ready for their annual food drive, and I was eager to help. I was wondering what happens after the holidays? With that in mind, my son and I came up with an idea. We have been doing Balloon and Magic workshops for the girl scouts throughout the Nassau area.
They are always willing to help others and earn a new badge, so, We offered them a $10.00 discount on the workshops if the girls would bring in non-perishable foods and supplies to help stock our local food pantry. When the school year ended and there weren't any more troop meetings, we didn't have a way to help.
We had to think of something else.
For picking the food up from our house, bringing it to the food Pantry and taking the time to send everyone Thank you notes.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
