Stampin’ Out Hunger the Stampin’ Up! Way!

Hi Everyone,

I’d like to share a little of what we did yesterday at our Stampin’ Out  Hunger Event to help our Second Harvest Food Bank here in Jacksonville, Florida.

Some of my team members and myself gathered together and hosted an event to help feed some hungry kids this summer. You know June is the hungriest time of the year for most food banks, as kids are home from school and not getting their lunches…therefore the food banks have to fill that need as well. So of course we had to help!!!

I didn’t think he’d wear it but he did.  Look at all those yummy Nathans’ Hot Dogs he made in the 100 degree weather for all the ladies.  They loved them!! (This was only one of many batches by the way). He’s my major hero!!!

It is a State of the Art Storage facility that is the best I’ve seen anywhere, clean, modern, climate controlled and Jeff and his wife Angie are the nicest people you’d ever want to meet. If you need storage you need to see them!! They can meet any storage need!!!

I guess that’s it for today. I’ve got tons to do and put away from the event yesterday.

Just one last message…..we earned enough $$$ to provide 3000 meals to the hungry people in Northeast Florida and we collected two barrel’s of food in addition to that!

I’m so proud of that and my team members that participated. We are making a difference and we’re having fun doing it!!


Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
