The church that I attend is partnering with other charitable organizations to do a county wide food drive. The goal is to collect 100,000 pounds of food, which would be enough to feed our counties 'food insecure' for an entire week. I am the 'representative' from my congregation and have been given the responsibility to organize the food-drive in the part of the county that I live in.
To boost donations the local towns need to be involved. To get the town's approvals, and their support, this has meant attending town council meetings which are being held this week--The last two nights I've attended two of them. Suffice it to say, I've been so glad to get home at the end of both of them...And I am vowing to never, ever get involved in town politics!!
I have one more meeting to attend this week.
I'm so very glad I have taken this afternoon off work!!!!
