If you donated to our bucket (or gave us what you thought was a tip) YOU helped us do this today! The final tally of the bucket was $398.00. That is $100 more than last year!!!! We matched it and presented a check to God’s Lifeline for $800!!!!! Guys, last year was $247. This is a 38% increase from last year!!!!!! A huge thank you to YOU for helping us provide this for our community. We also donated 20 bags of apples for the holiday food boxes they put together.
What is Gods Lifeline? On the outside it seems to be a thrift store and food pantry. IT IS MORE THAN THAT! The money that was donated to them goes back to members of the community. I may help pay rent or utility bills for those who may need some help. This was started and is currently run by a few of the Mt. Victory & Ridgeway area churches. Everyone that works here are volunteers and donate A LOT of their time! They take donations of clothing, childrens items, shoes and household items. If you are interested in donating items please give them a call. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR MAKING THIS HAPPEN!!!!!
Can you believe it has been 10 years!!!! Ten years ago, I visited my son, Jace’s kindergarten class to talk about apples! He’s now 15 and a sophomore in high school. We have both learned a lot in these last 10 years. Time flies when you’re having fun!
My goodness! We have been so busy this past week it’s been difficult to get regular posts done. We have lots of updates:
We sold out of our Honeycrisp, Macintosh and GEM pears this weekend, but we now have the Crimson Crisp. We have several other varieties (not listed) coming off, but are needing to get them washed and ready for you. We will keep you updated on their status. Lastly, we finally got out mums planted and we added “Happy” the apple to the landscaping with enough space you can take your picture with him!
