IN THE GARDEN: Thanks and a "Wish List"!

As we move into 2013 , In The Garden appreciates the contributions of so many who have made this outreach program grow and flourish! This past Sunday Scott and Harriet Donaldson, Hal Duryee, and Scott McKinley joined together to present a wonderful meal for 138 diners. The meal on January 6 was provided by the folks at St. John's - Worthington, and next Sunday's meal will be provided by the Grove City High School Key Club! Several empty dates remain open for the year; however, so if anyone wants to become a food provider or volunteer, please contact any of the Core Team (Deniray Mueller, Chiseko Hamisi, Lori Dhiraprasiddhi, Bill Bronson, Debbie Wiedwald, or Karen Peeler).
During the winter we have depleted our supplies of toiletries and survival supplies, so if any of you can provide any of the following, either from your travels, house-cleaning, or visits to the Dollar Store, please know they are much needed and appreciated by the ITG folks who live on the land:
1. toilet paper, personal hygiene articles
2. Shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors, deodorant
3. candles, matches, blankets,
4. coats, gloves, socks, woolen scarves, underwear
5. boxed and canned foods (especially with pop-tops)

flowersAltar Decoration Memorials
