Moxie’s Coat Drive 2010

December 31, 2010 • Paige

In December of 2010, I held my first coat drive.  I was inspired by people in my life who were very quick to help anyone in need, and I want to be one of those people  It was a very long time ago, but I know what it is like to have to be outside in cold weather without proper warm clothing.

For anyone just starting out, www.OneWarmCoat.org is a fantastic resource!   You will find all kinds of advice tol help you plan and conduct a successful drive.  You can also advertise your coat drive on their website, and at the end they will send you a cute certificate to recognize your efforts.

It doesn’t matter what you do, or how much you can help – what matters is that you find a way to help, and get started!  Do what you can, when you can.

Buying the freshest bread

December 18, 2010 • Paige

Some bread packaging has a “best by” date stamped on them, but for all those that don’t – how do you tell how old they are?  The twist-ties are color coded to tell you what day the bread was delivered.
 
Monday – Blue
Tuesday – Green
Thursday – Red
Friday – White
Saturday – Yellow

If you are shopping on a Thursday, don’t get bread with White or Yellow ties!
