Shining Stars Amatuer “Makes Dreams Come True”

On Thursday December 15, 2011, the Shining Stars Amateur Team donated to the Toys for Tots Tree. This is the 5th year that the team has donated their gifts exchange gifts to the tree in the lobby. I am proud of this team for all coming together and making others Christmas dreams come true. Children giving to children, what a wonderful feeling it is.

On Friday December 16, 2011, the Shining Stars Amateur Team completed its Project 212 Community Service Project. Assisting the team were Angie Locke, Sandy Logan, Sonya Barker, Georgi McKinney, and Wanda Geren. They all packed Shelf Stable packages for Meals on Wheels of Anderson. The Meals on Wheels Shelf Stable Meals program assures that no one will be without food when conditions make it unsafe for our drivers to deliver meals. Meal packages are packed in individual gallon size Zip-lock bags and contain: Ready to eat canned soup, nutri-grain bar or granola bar, package of crackers, canned or boxed juice, individual boxes of raisins, individual containers of fruit. The team all provided the items need and packaged 84 meals themselves, which were delivered to Meals on Wheels of Anderson during the Christmas break. The team learned that these meal bags are the only items that a person will have to eat on days that Meals on Wheels cannot deliver them a regular meal. They all had a good time doing this as a group. We are very proud of our giving team as well as their parents. Thanks to the Shining Amateur Team and parents!

This project allowed our team to realize just how fortunate we all are!
