I just talked to Susan over at Saline Area Social Services and their shelves are empty for the first time since she can recall.
She said there is no food to give out to families in need. Whoa.
I know that Steve Laatsch and the staff at Heritage School (Saline fifth and sixth graders) had a food drive today. My sixth grader took in a (recycled) bag of food to contribute and said she and her classmates wanted to fill the UM moving van to go to SASS tomorrow/Tues. morning.
Look in your cupboard and fill a bag of of non-perishables and drop it off to the SASS office, behind Dan's Downtown, at the back entrance off the parking lot.
When you go to Busch's or Country Market tonight (because, if you are like me, you go at least four times a week), buy a half dozen boxes of mac and cheese, some canned fruit or a bag full of paper products for SASS. They are at 131 E. Michigan Ave., 429-4570.
