"Our shelves are almost bare and the NC Food Bank is struggling to support the flood victims. We need almost everything! Cereal, oatmeal, tuna, pasta, canned vegetables, canned fruit, soup, diapers, baby wipes. Check your pantry, grocery store sales. Support Lowes Foods check out collection for us. Together we can get through this tragedy."

“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. we spent the day sorting through our many donations and thinking of each of our supporters with love and gratitude. It was an all day project but happily we will bw able to donate to numerous organizations this month! You can see the fruits of our labor in the photos section. Thank you to each and everyone of you who donates to us and thank you to all who so graciously receive our donations!

The holidays are here!! I hope everyone is enjoying the season. Not everyone is joyful this time of year, if you are looking for ways to help bring a little holiday happiness to someone in need please check out the links page to local organizations in need. These ideas apply to any county, region and state across the nation- just search your local organizations. In addition to the links here are some ways you can light up the holidays on your own. If you don't have money to donate these ideas are perfect and most are easy, requiring little time. Please remember to keep your giving going throughout the year:
*Involve your children in any of these activities- it is never too early to learn how to give to others!!
*Have a holiday baking party. Bring your goodies to your local fire department, police department and EMS.
*Go to local dollar stores and make up inexpensive stockings to keep in your car. Pass them out any homeless person you see or for anyone who looks like they need a little cheer. (holidays can be so stressful!)
*In addition to throwing some change in the Salvation Army kettle, bring a card or small treat to the bell ringer who is out there all day.
*Play an instrument or sing?? Bring your talents to a local nursing home or just spend some time visiting with the residents!
*Be there for your neighbors, whether it is shoveling snow from a side walk or helping an elderly neighbor put up lights.
*Perform some small act of kindness- pay for the person’s coffee behind you, person’s meal behind you in the drive through lane, leave a quarter or 2 in a gum ball or vending machine. You can hand out little notes encouraging them to “pay it forward”.
*Don’t know how to knit or crochet? No problem- donate some hats, gloves, coats, shoes and scarves you no longer need to shelters.
*Visit children in the hospital, read to them, draw with them and even help make them simple ornaments.
*Start a “Giving Challenge”. Encourage friends and family to help a certain number of people throughout the season. Have a hot chocolate party and have everyone share what they did to help.
*Make sandwiches and/or personal care kits to hand out to the homeless.
*Donate books, coloring books and puzzles to local hospital ERs and shelters. You can organize a collection drive with friends and family.
*Is there someone you take for granted? Remind them how much you love and appreciate them.
The possibilities for giving are endless. You can come up with some of your own ideas. Maybe you will even discover a new passion and keep the giving going all year.

Exciting news! I had the honor of speaking at the NRC's leadership meeting this week. We will be collaborating with them on projects. Details will be posted as they develop.
"The NRC would like to thank Ms. Hannah Moyles, director of local non-profit 'From Ewe to You,' and recipient of the 2014 Governor's Medallion Award for Service, for visiting the NRC today and speaking to the management team. Her work dovetails nicely with our mission here at the county, and we encourage everyone to visit her organization's website, linked below. Her group also has a Facebook page. Hannah is a great supporter and friend of the center, and we look forward to partnering with her. Thanks for coming, Hannah!"

We are fortunate enough to have received a $1,000 Summer of Service Grant to continue with our projects. We plan on using the money for supplies for all of our ongoing work, yarn for crocheting, clothing for shelters, personal care and food items for shelters. We will also be donating toys, bedding and food supplies to local animal shelters. I am grateful that we have this grant to make the holiday season a little more special for others. Photos will be posted as we gather our donations.
