Around South County: On A Day Of Service & A Sense of Gratitude

 Today was a Day of Service around South County.   It began for me with a morning of Service at St. Timothy's Food Pantry  as the Food Pantry took stock of the bi-weekly delivery by the Second Harvest Food Bank and geared up for a week of service to the clients.    As the day was finished, a legally blind man was brought to the pantry to be registered to be served.

I continued onward as I joined the Michael Chang Tennis Classic.  This is an event spreaheaded by Tennis Great Michael Chang thru his family foundation to support HomeAid Orange County.   I was part of the volunteer contingent on behalf of HomeAid OC that was the featured charity.  

HomeAid OC is the charity art of the Builders Industry Associatoin whose avowed mission is the end homelessness in Orange County.  I had a chance to have some insightful discussions with a member of the Board of HomeAid OC and was very pleased to see that HomeAid Chapters are continually being launched throughout the United States.   One of the recent initiatives they've begun is to create "care kits" for the homeless.    I took a few and was able to hand them off as I returned to South County.

Today reminded me of this affirmation: 

Affirmation Challenge, Day 5 [Gratitude]: "I'm grateful for everything in my life."
