Marching On

“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, 
how much money we have made, 
how many great things we have done.

We will be judged by 
"I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, 
I was naked and you clothed me. 
I was homeless, and you took me in.” 

Our next We CAN meeting will be held Monday, March 4th at Barbara E's home at 10:00 a.m.

We will be making hooded bath towels for children for the Christmas Box House in Provo.
If you would like to, you can bring a bath towel with a wash cloth or a hand towel to make one, or  two bath towels and one hand towel will make two hooded towels (as the hand towels are split in half to make the hood for each one).  However, don't feel like you have to bring towels, you are welcome to come and help sew and visit.  

The thinner towels at Wal-Mart work well - they are $2.99 per towel and $2.50 for wash cloths . . .not sure how much the hand towels are . . .

We will have a potluck lunch as well ~ bring a friend and come enjoy a few hours of service.

Don't wait a single moment - February 2013

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. "

 Monday, January 28th our We CAN group met at Ardis' home to prepare 50 sack lunches for the Food and Care Coalition.  These lunches are made for people who are working, have appointments or interviews and cannot go to the Food and Care Coalition for a meal that day.  We also collected hamburger and hotdog buns for the Coalition.
The lunches were delivered to the Food and Care Coalition in Provo, which provides many resources for the homeless and low income of Utah County.  They not only feed people who are hungry, they also provide hygiene supplies, shower facilities, laundry services, internet access, hair cuts, emergency shelter, and have different client outreach programs.  They focus their efforts on providing hope, dignity and compassion.
