'Tis the season to GIVE!

Every year around this time, our bunco group comes together to help those in need. This year we sponsored 5 families through Operation Homefront – Georgia, an organization with the mission of providing assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.  Everyone in our group contributed with a donation and about half of us were able to meet at Target for the fun stuff, shopping!
We stuffed our carts full of Barbie Dolls, Star Wars figurines, sidewalk chalk, books, puzzles, games and a few necessitates like PJs, cozy sweaters, running shoes, etc. Overall, we were able to buy $500 worth of toys and clothes or as you see in the picture below - 3 cart loads of goodies for the boys and girls! It feels incredibly good to give back to those who give so much... like their loved ones who protect and serve this great nation! We can never thank our service men and women (and their families) enough!

Lindsay and I would love to hear what charitable events your bunco group may do around the holiday season. Please post a comment with your story… because we change things up each year it may provide us with an idea for next season!
