Thank you to everyone who voted for me in the Farm Rich Kids Who Give Contest. Great news...I won. The $1,000 grant to Katie's Krops will help start two new vegetable gardens to help feed people in need. I couldn't have done it without you. Your votes are making two new gardens possible. I also want to thank Farm Rich for supporting Katie's Krops.
Congratulations to Andi, Olivia, Nathan & Anna (the other 4 winners)!
Thank you to everyone who has e-mailed asking where they can purchase a copy of "Katie's Cabbage". The book is written, the illustrations are complete and now we just need a publisher. As soon as 'Katie's Cabbage' is published we will be sure to let everyone know and if you are a publisher...'let's talk'!
Katie needs your help to make her dream a reality. Katie is hosting two events in July:
On Thursday, July 15th from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Katie will be at Aura Lee’s located at 140-C West Richardson Ave. in Historic Downtown Summerville. She is asking for your help in restocking the shelves at Tri County Family Ministries by dropping off donations of canned vegetables, canned meat and peanut butter. Canned goods with pop-tops are preferred so homeless guests of Tri County are able to open them. Everyone who drops off a donation will be given a gift certificate for a percentage off their purchase at Aura Lee’s.
On Saturday, July 17th Katie is asking for your help by bringing vegetables from your home, friends and/or neighbors gardens to Children’s Orchards located at 1580 Old Trolley Rd. to donate to Tri County Family Ministries & The Palmetto House. A few tomatoes, a zucchini, a pepper or two, any vegetable will greatly help people in our community who are struggling to eat. If you don’t have a garden you can still help. Donations of canned vegetables, pork & beans and peanut butter are welcomed. Katie will be at the store from 10:30 to 1:00 p.m. but donations will be welcome all day long. In addition to other store promotions taking place that day Children’s Orchard will provide shoppers that donate food with a 10% off coupon.
Please stop by on Thursday, July 15th or Saturday, July 17th with your donations and help people in the Low Country have a healthy meal. Together we can have a huge impact on helping those in need in our community.
