Charity of the Month for November 2011: Community Servings

11/30/2011 Posted by Mel Got Served
I'm great at donating, bad at blogging. I've been meaning to post for weeks but have been a slacker. Forgive me.

I was riding the train from from work and along with staring at the weird people, I always check out the ads. That's where Pie in the Sky, part of Community Servings, got my attention. Pie in the Sky is their Thanksgiving drive where people can sell pies, donated by restaurants, to raise money for meals to deliver to people with critical and chronic illnesses who cannot shop or cook. Every Thanksgiving you can either buy a pie for your dinner and pick it up or buy a pie that they'll deliver to one of their clients. I was like a day late to donate a pie to someone else so opted instead to donate directly to the organization. Just $25 can provide a week's worth of meals to someone. During these holiday times, it's a small thing that can make a huge difference.

Plus how could Mel Got SERVED not donate to a charity with SERVINGS in its name?
