  • Hats for the Hungry Thanksgiving Food Drive

    Last year’s Hats for the Homeless beanie drive was a huge success but since we now have the local shelter all stocked up on beanies, we thought we would reach out to another group in need at this time of year… those who can’t afford a Thanksgiving feast like so many of us are lucky enough to eat.
