Hope Totes – Thank you to everyone who signed up on the website to volunteer at Hope Totes this month. Due to your generosity with your time, we are completely booked! But, if you missed your chance, fear not as we WILL volunteer there again.

FEBRUARY From the Heart Food Drive– Just a heads-up that at the FEBRUARY luncheon, we will once again be collecting non-perishable food items for the Round Rock Area Serving Center Food Pantry. When buying items for the food drive, please collect only shelf stable items such as canned goods, pasta, tuna, soups, and the like. Important, but often overlooked food items are those things that go into a packed lunch…..pudding or fruit cups, individually wrapped treats ( fun fruits, individual packets of cookies, fruit by the foot, granola bars, etc.) that ensure a child’s lunch looks just like the lunch of the child next to him/her. Juice boxes are another overlooked donated item. Bring your items to the FEBRUARY luncheon. If you are not able to attend, please reach out to a board member and arrange to drop your items at her house. If you cannot do either, feel free to take them directly to the Serving Center (1099 E Main Street), ask them to weigh your donations, and please send me the total.
