Yeah, it’s true one idea to help with a problem and the rest comes together with the help of some nice people; and despite all of the gloomy news we are a country full of good folks.
412 Food Rescue mobilizes volunteers to distribute surplus food
Patty Lemer had some spare time one day recently, so she sent a message to 412 Food Rescue that she was available for a run. She was directed to the Giant Eagle in Moon.
“Artichokes, apples, four colors of peppers,” she said, describing some of the produce in nine boxes — all perfectly edible but either not pretty enough to sell or too close to the “sell by” date.
Someone saw an answer to a problem and others found ways to help and then others and then more folks and things got better. I like that. Everyone added what they could. Alone it wasn’t enough but together it was amazing. That’s the way we should all be, all over this world.
Even if all you may be able to do is smile at someone else while stuck in a long aggravating checkout line, it may make someone’s day brighter. Happier folks make others happy and we all need a bit of that to survive. That’s a hippie vibe. Pass it on.
