"A" is for Applesauce

Ever wonder what approximately 2500 individual containers of applesauce looks like?

Well, now you know.

This afternoon we did a drive to collect applesauce for a local charity that feeds homeless children. The kids don't have anything to eat from the time they leave school on Friday until they get back to school on Monday. So, the organization puts together little survival kits of food that allows them to get healthy, ready-to-eat food over the weekend.

We ended up with roughly 2500 individual containers.

Which was WAY more than we were expecting.

Since we weren't expecting that much, I told the organziation they could pick it up on Monday. Which meant it had to go from the drive location to the station.

In my car.

Little known fact: Ford Escapes can hold a lot of applesauce.

Then, said applesauce had to be taken into the conference room.

Thankfully, I had a coworker willing to help.....

The ironic part?

I don't even eat applesauce.

What a good cause.
It breaks my heart to think that some kids are living like that and don't have the resources to get help.
