It's Giving Time

November 26, 2013 - Barb Barrett
The people at the Son-Light House work so hard. And what a system they have. I went last week to meet the Muncy FBLA students there, and I was humbly rewarded by the dedication of the volunteers and the families they serve every month. For 31 years they have distributed clothing and food to so many households. They are looking to buy some turkeys for Thanksgiving dinners with some of the cash donations they received. Believe me, anything you want to give to the Son-Light house will be put to good use. Be sure to donate clothing that is in good condition and food that is non-perishable. They could really use some cereal. I was astounded at the number of cases that they distribute - an average of 250 boxes a week! And just this week I received a press release announcing that the Food Banks are really struggling this season, because they can't keep up with demand. The business organization in Muncy has found a creative way to collect food. The Muncy Professional Business Association is looking for sponsors for a free movie for all the kids in the Muncy area. They will get to see the movie "Frozen" at the Ritz Theatre on Dec. 14 and a food item for the Son-Light House will get them in for free. Kids get free popcorn and gift bags filled with items from the sponsors. This is a good way to advertise your business. Put something in the gift bag with your name on it, like a cool key chain or a flash drive, and help sponsor the movie. $1400 need to be raised to fill the theater and any amount can be contributed toward the cause. Just contact the theatre or Chris Johnson at Brickhouse Advertising to reserve your sponsorship. More information is available on the MPBA website at www.muncybusiness.org.
