Amazing program that supports rehabilitation from drug and alcohol abuse.  In addition to regular financial donations, we bought a table for 10 to feed the homeless for Thanksgiving.

Abundant Love Project

Beautiful project started by Deb Delisi after the sudden loss of her daughter.  She takes ordinary stones and paints a “Heart” on one side and “You are loved” on the other and leaves them randomly around town.  People find them and it inspires them to make more stones.  This effort has spread to other countries as well.  We are in the process of painting our own rocks to leave around town.  Please check out their facebook page at the link below!
