First Annual Winter Shopping & Pampering Food Drive

On Saturday, November 21 Reconnecting hosted its first ever Winter Shopping and Pampering Food Drive; and, as much as that might have been a tongue twister, the success will be allowing many taste-buds - and bellies, for that matter - in need to have a better holiday this season.

The event cost Four (4) canned goods to enter and provided the guests with a meal of Sloppy Joes, Buffalo Chicken Dip, Grapes & Strawberries, Carrots & Broccoli and drinks.

The guests also got to buy unique Christmas gifts from Mary Kay, Watkins, Pampered Chef, Party Lite, a local wood craft booth and/or a primitive craft-maker booth.

And, of course, Massage Therapy, Paraffin Dip, and Reflexology pamperings were offered the whole day, making this Shopping Experience far superior over Black Friday, hands down.

Not only was it alot of fun, but we collected 73 goods and nearly $100 for Clarion's Food Bank!!

Thank you to all who came out and made this such a success; and, hopefully we'll see all of you next year.
