Hey all! This is Renee Geniole and I am hijacking the ROCK Missions blog today! I am here to tell you about a wonderful event is going on throughout Chatham-Kent, and we want YOU to be a part of it.
Have you heard about the May 16th Miracle? It's super simple. On May 16th, place a canned good on your porch, in your door way, someone just outside your home. Make sure you do it before noon! Volunteers from ALL over Chatham-Kent will come along and pick it up. Chatham, Blenheim, Ridgetown, Merlin, Tilbury, Wallaceburg, etc, etc, etc... we'll be there!
Out in the sticks, you say? Check out our website, very soon there will be updated locations to drop off your canned good.
How easy is this? And imagine, if every single home donated one (yes, just ONE) non-perishable, our food banks would be overflowing.
So what does this have to do with ROCK Missions? Well, for a few different reasons, I decided to represent ROCK in this super event. One - with the amount of support our group gets from this community, how could we possibly sit back idle when something of such magnitude is going on. We are always there to help, wherever the call comes from. And two - an event like this will help people whom we call friends. Participating in anything that helps the population that needs us the most, we're there with bells on!
So, once again, Chatham-Kent is going to pull off a food drive that proves how much of an amazing community we are! I am having a blast connecting with people, organizing my team, and witnessing so many people coming forward. Why am I telling you, you ask? So YOU can put your canned good out. So YOU can share this info on your Facebook, Instagram, email, and all other avenues so the word keeps getting out!
Here's what you need to know:

If there is an instagram page, or twitter, my apologies, I'm not there yet - haha!
Ok, that's my spiel. I hope I've caught your attention. We're gonna make a miracle happen - come along for the ride!
