Workday Wednesday

I got FOUR huge, wonderful, fabulous boxes of fabric from Swavelle/Mill Creek this week. We love their fabric, it makes beautiful, sturdy bags. On top of all that, they sent boxes to the other Green Bag Lady locations in Tennessee and New York too! Thanks Meltem and everyone at Swavelle/Mill Creek. We adore you!
 I've been working on some watercolors. Clearly I enjoy painting elephants…
 I love it when Little Man helps me with bags. Here he is turning them right side out for me.
These 50 bags will go off to AmeriCorps tomorrow. This is what they are going to be used for:

AmeriCorps at Focus Points Family Resource Center in Denver, Colorado is currently working with other neighborhood partners to coordinate a weekly Grocery Trip Bus for residents. There is not a full service grocery store in the neighborhoods that they serve, which leaves approximately 10,000 low-income residents without access to healthy, affordable food. They are hoping to alleviate this barrier to access with this new bus service. The weekly trips are set to begin April 3, 2014.

In order to help this service be a success, they will provide incentives to those that utilize it and those that refer others to it. Green Bag Lady bags are going to be one of the incentives. YAY!
I'm thrilled to help out AmeriCorps in this program. What are you working on today/this week? Teresa

That's wonderful of Swavelle/Mill Creek to donate so much fabric to all of our locations!! Your watercolors are very pretty! Little Man is doing a great job turning those bags. I think it's great that Green Bag Lady bags are going to be one of the incentives!
