Is it just us, or has this summer been flying by?! Take a second to pause with us and reflect on a few of our favorite things as of late, to help you soak up the last glorious bits of summer.
An activity: Show Love to Your Neighbors
It’s counterintuitive, but oftentimes the best days are spent serving others. It’s fun AND rewarding to channel your energy into loving the people in your community that you normally don’t interact with very much. Food banks typically lack donations in the summer, but the reality is that they need to be stocked year round! Grab a friend or your kiddos and head to the grocery store to choose some of your favorite (non-perishable) items to drop by your local food bank.
