Good morning, and a very happy snowy Tuesday morning to all! We got QUITE A BIT of snow, didn’t we? And for once it didn’t all come at the same time, it just kind of fell for a few hours, making everything all sparkly! Ah, snow. And yes, it’s a pain to clear, and may possibly make you late for work or school, but still. SNOW! In December. Are we headed for a white Christmas? Time will tell!
Does the snow get you in the festive spirit? Sometimes it’s a little easier to do all those holiday chores and check off those lists when it actually looks festive outside. Those rainy, grey Decembers just don’t have that certain something, so at least we’ve got that going for us so far this season.
If you’re feeling festive, you might want to share the love around, and what better way than to donate to Willow’s food drive, to benefit the fabulous Welcome Inn. Their website has a lot of great information about their services and programs, how to get involved in a volunteer role and more, and this little paragraph sums it up quite nicely:
“Since 1966, the poverty of loneliness and exclusion has been overcome with friendship and compassion at Welcome Inn Community Centre, where people from all walks of life work together to alleviate poverty in the North End and across Hamilton. Each person at Welcome Inn is accepted and welcomed as we are. We respect one another in our diversity and believe we all have something of value to give and to receive. Together, we build healthy and resilient community. We offer opportunities for spiritual growth with respect for each person’s spiritual journey and different faith traditions.”
So please do consider giving to Welcome Inn through Willow this holiday season. And, for every item you donate to our food drive, you’ll be entered in our draw for an incredible Aveda gift basket, valued at $250.00. Something for the community, something for you. We all win! The food drive runs until December 24th, so you’ve got just under two weeks to bring something by.
Wait, did we read that correctly? Just under two weeks?! Indeed it is. If that realization makes you panic just a wee little bit, then you have even more reason to head to Willow! Bring your food donations and your gift list and we will help you check off a few items. Gift packages are available, some of your favourite products are featured with limited-edition holiday aromas, making them extra special, and then there are always the tried and true favourites that you can peep online and make your choices when you visit the salon. Done and done.
So pop in, drop off your donations, and shop in Willow’s stress-free, beautiful environment. No panic necessary. And, as always, let us know if we can help you choose that perfect gift!
Thanks for reading, we’ll chat again on Friday. See you then!
