Happy News to Report.

Thursday, December 03, 2009 Posted by Rita A

From sadness comes happiness. God works in mysterious ways. Here is an update about the story I mentioned yesterday, about the robbery of goods for needy families from a charitable organization. There has been an outpouring of generosity to replace the donations that were lost. The local news has been at the location since yesterday reporting more and more donations being dropped off. Toys for Tots is replacing all the toys taken. All in 24 hours time. The outpouring of support is so great that it has now helped several other communities in the area. Even more families will be helped. I jumped on the story and contacted a few of the companies I have worked with to see if they could help. I sent several emails hoping to find goods we could get back to the charity. Well here is the good news from my contacts.

Ooba Beverages has provided 10 pallets of drinks. That is over 10,000 bottles of drinks.

Asher's Chocolates is providing candy and is shipping it directly.

Sara Lee is providing what is needed per the agency.

My heart is filled with thanks. I am so proud to be able to help in my small way to get information out. I am actually in tears for the goodness of these companies and for myself for reaching out. I can't believe it. It is truly a testament to the Christmas Spirit. The organization may never know how they received such great donations but in my heart, I know. Many thanks to Asher's Chocolates and Ooba Beverages and Sara Lee for proving the Christmas Spirit is alive.
