(Brentwood, TN) I’m sitting in the van listening to “The Connection” on NPR and waiting for my 10 a.m. appointment. I’ve already taken Grace to school, went to the cleaners, and picked up a birthday present for a party Anna has to attend tonight from Target. Not too bad before 9:30 a.m.
Tomorrow my church will host our first ever Potato Drop. At 6 a.m. a tractor trailer truck with some 40,000 poinds of potatoes will arrive. By 8, a plethora of folks will come by and begin rebagging these potatoes into smaller bags for use by local hunger agencies. This is a great outreach opportunity in that it is tangible and accessable for most folks. I’m looking forward to seeing folks come together for this event.
