Aurora Interfaith-cash donations
We would like to at least reach the lowest level of sponsorship for Aurora Interfaith which is $500. We are not there yet, but we could be if everyone gave just a little. Aurora Interfaith appreciates our food donations, but also needs cash to keep the lights on and pay their staff. Please consider giving a small cash donation (just indicate it is for Aurora Interfaith). Thank you for your support!
Aurora Interfaith Food Donations
We were not able to make a delivery this week as there were only four bags of food in the wagon. The need is great, donations are down. Please consider leaving a few items in the red wagons by the door. They are always in need of cereal, crackers, refried beans, soups, chili, pasta, ready meals (hamburger or tuna helper), canned fruit and individual fruit cups, granola bars, canned meats, condiments, popcorn (microwave), toilet paper (highly needed), and small size shampoo, conditioner, chap stick, liquid and bar soaps, toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss or pics, deodorant, nail files, and paper towels.
Green Team Tip
Green Team Tip
The best way to deal with plastic packaging waste is to avoid it. For example, rather than buying individual servings of yogurt for lunches, purchase the largest size you can and at home parcel out portions into reusable containers. Consider not only dollar savings but also look for savings that help the earth.
