The "Food for Fines" program is going strong at the Southington Public Library. Here's your chance to have your overdue fines forgiven by bringing in a non-perishable food item. All contributions will be taken to the Southington Community Services.
The shelves at the Southington Community Food Pantry are running low. They are in need of non-perishable food and personal care items. Here's a list of urgently needed items:
Cereal, Peanut Butter, Rice, Jelly, Pasta, Sauce Mac & Cheese, Tuna Fish, Snacks, Juice, Canned Fruits and vegetables.
Donations can also be made Monday through Friday at Bread for Life, Friendship Hall (behind the Masonic Hall), Main St., Southington from 9 a.m. to 12 Noon, or at Southington Community Services, 91 Norton St., Plantsville, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
This is Day 21 of my Be Thankful Challenge and I'm expressing my gratitude for libraries. They're one of my all-time favorite places. I love to read. I love to learn. I just love books so it would make sense that I'd love a place that's loaded with them.
I hope you consider joining me in my Holiday Season "Be Thankful Challenge". I've learned that no matter how bad things get, its so important to find time in each day and to reflect on the many reasons we all have to be grateful. It really helps put things in perspective because .... "If you concentrate on finding what is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul." ~Rabbi Harold Kushner
