Pheasant Hills Annual Holiday Food Drive

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED!!
WATCH FOR YOUR GROCERY BAG ON YOUR MAILBOX
THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 1st!

Every holiday season for over 30 years, Pheasant Hills has held an Annual Neighborhood HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE to benefit the L.I.F.E. Food Pantry here in Loveland.  The L.I.F.E. (Loveland Inter-Faith Effort) Food Pantry provides emergency assistance to families who live in the Loveland School District and who meet specific income guidelines.  With the current economy, food pantries are especially in need of community assistance to help fill their shelves.  Our neighborhood can help “make a difference” and help our own Loveland community.

Once again we are looking for volunteers to help us with this neighborhood holiday tradition.  Last winter over 60 neighborhood volunteers collected over 400 bags from our neighbors in the Pheasant Hills, Claiborne and Pheasant Hills on the Lake subdivisions.  Our three neighborhoods have been very giving in the past and the L.I.F.E. Food Pantry looks forward to our extremely generous contributions each winter especially this year again with the current economy.

On Saturday, Dec. 6th, volunteers will go door-to-door to collect the filled grocery bags that will have been distributed earlier in the week and then take those donations to the Food Pantry housed in Prince of Peace Lutheran Church on Lebanon Road to sort and box.  Many volunteers are needed to make this project successful.  During this “season of giving”, this can be a wonderful project to do as a family with children of any age, or for a student in need of service hours for their school.   The time commitment is about 2 hours.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO FILL EXTRA GROCERY BAGS!!  The filled bags are to be LEFT ON YOUR FRONT PORCH on Saturday, December 6th, BEFORE 10:00 A.M.

If there is no bag ON YOUR PORCH when we visit your street, we’ll still stop by just in case you forgot to set it out.  Also, if you know you won’t be home, you can always call us and we’ll arrange an early pick up or you can drop it off at our house at 1097 Hickory Ridge Lane.

Please call to volunteer: Linda and Russ White 683-6576.  Volunteers are also needed to help deliver grocery bags on the Sunday/Monday before the Food Drive.

The following is a SUGGESTED LIST for emergency assistance to feed a FAMILY OF 4 FOR 2 DAYS (this may be helpful when filling your donation grocery bag):

  • 2 packages/cans of meats (i.e. chili, stew)
  • 4 cans of vegetables

Help Granny’s Garden!

As some of you may know, when I am not running through the streets of Pheasant Hills I serve on the Board of the Granny’s Garden School in Loveland, Ohio. This 10-year old program teaches over 1,700 1st through 4th graders every week in outdoor gardens surrounding the Loveland Primary and Elementary Schools. Kids learn all about gardens, veggies, and how plants grow, but more importantly they learn math, science, biology and other lessons using the gardens as a fun and unique learning environment. It’s a truly great program.

And YOU CAN HELP. Granny’s Garden is 100% funded by donations and fundraisers. The Loveland School District does not provide one penny of funding for this truly amazing program. So what can you do to help?

Sign up for the iGive online shopping program. You register and then go shop online at any of 1,200 great stores like Macy’s, Amazon, Home Depot, Kohl’s and many of your favorite stores. Every dollar you spend provides a portion to Granny’s Garden School without costing you anything! You just shop, and Granny’s get to benefit from your buying since every participating retailer donates a percentage to iGive. Just sign up and register and Granny gets $5 bucks. Easy to do and feels good to do it.

Here is what you do to help us. Go to Granny’s Garden School iGive page and register to download the shopping widget….then just shop. That’s it! Your help will go a long way in keeping this powerful program moving forward teaching our school children to love the outdoors and learning together.

Won’t you help? If your wife, husband, partner or Mom does all the online shopping, please tell them to shop with iGive and Granny’s Garden School!

Thanks so much in advance for your help.
Chris Timman
