We are happy to share that Guild Group RSZ members prepared 155 jars of dried bean soup jars and donated them to the Pop Up Pantry for our sites. This was a labor of love getting all this completed in one meeting – a big undertaking for sure.  Danielle at Commons at Grant was happy to be serving the residents the Bean Soup.  See photos attached.

Our Southpoint Christmas Gift Drive is beginning to take shape.  This will be our fourth year granting wishes for the children at Southpoint.  Wickliffe Progressive Elementary School will once again partner with the Pop Up Team to give the school children, along with their families and staff, an opportunity for Service Learning and giving back to our neighbors in need.

As always, our team is continually blessed and grateful for everyone who contributes to Heart to Heart and the Pop Up Pantry with their continued donations and service.  We couldn’t do all this without the dedicated individuals who give so freely to our community in need.
