It is that time of year again. We at You Are Special love this time of the year. We all get geared up for our annual Thanksgiving Dinner food giveaway at our local food pantry. Some call us a food bank but we are a food pantry. There are many organizations helping this year such as Stater Bros, Albertsons, Ralphs and Pacific Ranch in Orange, Tustin, Villa Park and SantaAna.
We laugh together, we cry together with those who are struggling this year such as the new 18 year old who is now standing in line every week for food for her family. She attends the local college, Rancho Santiago up the street from us but her family is working hard but do not have enough money to buy food for their family.
We also received a phone all from the local community college to see if we accepted college students to receive a Thanksgiving Dinner. Of course we said yes.
Our desire is to give local and feed local. Our food and finances go to those in our local area and the surrounding areas who have a need for food. We want to be what we are called to be and that is a charity giving to those less fortunate that us with love.
See you at the stores!
