Special Delivery - from our Brickhouse friends!

Hello, this is Tim. The Brickhouse is receiving a lot of orders from our crafters these days so Patti and I are always checking to see if any boxes have been left on the Brickhouse porch. We did receive an order from a crafter today but we also have been receiving some special deliveries - from our Brickhouse friends! When I went to the porch to see whose order we received, I noticed some bags of groceries by our Food Donation box!

Patti has shared pictures from our local Food Bank as well as pointing out the need for help on previous postings. She has also shared this information on emails and Facebook. We have met some of you as you drop off donations but sometimes we are not around when you stop by. For those we haven't been able to thank personally, we hope to be able to some day but I will use this blog for now.

Above the door to the Craft Shop you may notice the saying 'Enter as Strangers...Leave As Friends'. Whether we've met you or not, you are a Brickhouse Friend when you stop by and leave Food Bank donations. You are also a Friend to someone else you may never meet - the person who will use your donation for theirselves and their families. Someone who is less fortunate than you.

Whether you give 1 can of soup or a bag of groceries - we want to Thank You! Remember - if we all give a little, it adds up to a lot.

What a wonderful service - collecting the food like that! If all small shops did that, we'd go a long way to helping the hungry!!
