Thanks all!  I wanted something a little different from last year's poster that Bryan designed.  It is hard to do something interesting with logos.  Next year I want to do a black and white one!  Smiley

Just wanted to share that our partnership with Wegmans is a go!  I signed papers on Saturday and our first food distribution to the needy in Takoma Park/Silver Spring MD will be on April 8th!  

We also purchased this to do the deliveries.
 

You can read more about it here as well as see our GoFundMe page.  Smiley

We also need to get coolers and a portable refrigerator for the perishable items and bins to transport the food.

The auction will definitely help pay for these items.  Thanks so much all for your continued support!!!

Thank you Bea and Always!!!! 

We are truly grateful for your support!!!  I was working on the prebidding list today and you guys have donated so many, many fun and wonderful things.  Thank you!!!! Smiley  This is not only going to make money for DM, but will help build community at our school and in our community.  Smiley

Thank you for your kind donation towards our trailer purchase Always.  Lana is going to be making a donation of $100 to DM on Monday from her recent button sales to Flower Valley ES that she made with your button machine!  Your gift goes on and on!  Smiley You can see them here:

The Wegmans folks have been so wonderful!  They partner with Manna during the weekdays, but on the weekends all this food goes to waste.  If things go well we hope to reach out to the other Wegmans.  I still need to research if the other grocery stores have found groups to take their food on the weekends.  So much to do...I really need to learn about food and try to find ways to save more of it.

Hi Always!  Lana is loving it!  She's going to be bringing your machine to do "color your own" buttons at our STEAM Night on March 31 and Global Youth Service Day on April 22!  I'll post pics!

Hi all!

This Friday we had our STEAM/DM Auction.  All the handmade goodies were loved as usual! 

The knit/crocheted items were a big hit this time around.  The sewn stuff not so much.  I don't know if there is any rhyme or reason to it all. The handmade cards were a big hit too.  The jewelry which usually does really well didn't this time around.  Oh well.  The great thing about all these goodies is that I can store them for the next event!  Smiley 

But here is the exciting news....we made over 5K!  Smiley  It couldn't have come at a better time since we are gearing up for the food distribution!!!  And I fear that our van (old) is on its last legs.  It is over 16 years old and from the rewiring Bryan discovered he thinks that it was used to power and haul a trailer.  Today it wouldn't start and he ended up having to rent a vehicle to take them to their convention site visit.  This isn't the first time that this has happened. I am hoping that he'll consider getting another van soon.   

Here is Lana getting set up to make buttons.  I didn't get a good action shot, but you can see Always' machine and some of her preprinted button offerings.  They do well, but the kids really enjoy creating their own images.


We are now gearing up for Global Youth Service Day on April 22.  I'll share Lana's button design for that once it comes together.  Smiley

Thanks again to all of you for helping us!  You all have truly made a difference.
