Why Do I Volunteer....Because I Get Back Emails Like This
Why Do I Volunteer....Because I Get Emails Like This Back
For the past several years, I have volunteered with othe Realtors and our families to help hand out turkeys and all the fixings for a great Thanksgiving Day meal.
We really have no rules except that you have to be an adult. I live in an area called the "Inland Empire" and both San Bernardino and Riverside Counties are in this area.
For the past several years, I have blogged about this event and had many callers asking questions and thanking me afterwards. This year I started getting calls before I had posted the dates and times so I was glad I could give them the information.
We started handing out at 9:00 am shut down about 10:45 am. Many had arrived at 6:00 am to make sure they got their turkey.
So Saturday morning came and I went and helped hand out the turkeys plus corn, peas, stuffing, yams and a 5 lb. bag of potatoes. I was on "YAMS" and we all enjoyed ourselves. It did not seem like work and I was really sorry when all 450 turkeys for this location had been given out. I loved wishing everyone a "Happy Thankgiving" and seeing all of their smiling faces...especially the little kids who were still wrapped up in blankets and even PJ's because of the frigid cold.
But then while I was reading my email Saturday night I found this note......
We sure will have a wonderful Thanksgiving :) and you know what.. you guys doubled blessed us, we never knew about the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store what a blessing and we got to see the workshop too about the ceiling fans :) Thanksgiving Dinner and all the goodies with it and now a resource that we can go to, to help fix our home, being low income and just trying to make it through, but yet, to make it through the holiday thank you so much :) what a Blessing :) Thank you :) have a wonderful Thanksgiving :) Have a good evening
I was so happy to receive it and glad many had found my blog post for the past couple of years as well. Yes, blogging absolutely does work....and gets the word out to the people you are trying to reach. Happy Thanksgiving.
