So what's the latest? Well, yesterday I did our donation of 270 stuffed animals to the Rhode Island State Police. The donation went well. The RISP have a new HQ since I had been there last. It is a pretty impressive looking building. Here is a photo:
Today, I did another donation to a homeless shelter in Roxbury. I had to park on the busy street outside the shelter to unload my boxes. It was just starting to rain and I was struggling to carry two boxes at once when a man who was standing on the sidewalk came over and offered to help. He asked me where I was going and carried the boxes inside the shelter for me. It was such a nice gesture and I was so appreciative. It really makes you feel good when people make an effort to help. We've donated to the shelter a number of times before and they're always happy to receive our items. I will post a photo from that donation tomorrow.
In other good news, we have our first 2014 calendar sponsor on board. It is the Milford National Bank which has been a very long term supporter of our work. They're always so prompt to respond which is really helpful as well. I can't believe it is already time to start working on the 2014 calendar!
Well, that's the latest for tonight. I'm trying to get to bed at a decent hour- it really makes a difference for a productive morning. However, as much as I try, it rarely seems to happen. Until tomorrow friends...
