Back in Business
First of all, I am back home after a week in the Low Country of South Carolina. I think they call it low country because of the low or no inter-net connection I had to deal with for a week. If I didn’t read/comment on articles, that couldn’t be helped. I could only get a clear connection at 5 am for about an hour. I gave it my best try, but now I’m back in business and back to work!
Stuff the Buss – Chattanooga, TN
Remember the beginning of school? Remember all the fun you had getting the new school supplies? There was nothing better than those new pencils with nice clean erasers and no teeth marks! The paper was the best thing; loose leaf binders full of sparkling white paper to start off the new school year. Every kid doesn’t get those school supplies because their parents can’t afford them. But we can help with a program in Chattanooga called “Stuff the Bus“.
The program kicked off Sunday, August 22, 2010 and will run through October. “Stuff the Bus” is sponsored by the United Way of greater Chattanooga. To find out how you can help and a list of items that are being requested – click here. If you prefer, you can donate money. Let’s all help the students get a good start and let them know that we care about them and their education.
