2010 Thanksgiving Shopping for the Food Pantry 1

Here at TheSage, our staff has an annual tradition that is now in its fifth year of operation. We go shopping for the local Food Pantry and each staff member is given $50 to purchase food for a Thanksgiving dinner. This year we had the staff make teams of 2 people and each team was given $100 for shopping. Each team was required to make a menu and complete the whole menu as best as they could. We also have challenges to see which team can get the least amount of change or which team can get the most groceries and still complete their menu. This event is one of our favorite ways to give back to the community.

This year, we took lots of pictures to share with you and I hope you enjoy them!

About Andee

Director of Happiness. I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade soaps, and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps, and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!
