    It definitely sounds like fun, but I'm unable to come. It's Charlie's birthday on that day. I hope to come next year.

    Yes! We will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items again this year to benefit the Food Pantry of the Church of the Good Shepherd. The food pantry is located in the north Buffalo neighborhood, and serves a huge number of households each week.

    We are also accepting donations of gently used winter clothing. Men's clothing is particularly needed at this time.Donations can be brought to the Holiday party, or if you are not able to attend and want to donate, please contact me and I will pick up your items.

    If you have any questions about the pantry, please contact me for details. The North Ridge has been exceedingly generous in the past couple of years, and your donations make a difference in the lives of SO many families!

    I am in limbo right now. Not allowed to request off weekends during the holiday shopping season. As soon as I have my schedule I will let you know our status.
