What would you do with the $500 business grant?
As I share 3 very different businesses with my husband, it was really difficult to decide how to allocate $500 to benefit our community. So many options! I came up with the idea of splitting the grant between Wharf Pharmacy and Pinot’s Palette. We want to start a free childrens vitamin program through the pharmacy. I don’t think most people realize how many families go without enough food right here in our own home towns. And by extension, not enough nutrition. Not having enough money for health and wellness is something we see every day in the pharmacy. So, Wharf Pharmacy would like to donate 125 bottles of childrens vitamins to needy families in our area. Through Pinot’s Palette, we would also like to host a painting event for the kids of our service men & women who will be missing Christmas with a parent who is deployed. I can’t imagine not seeing my children all the time, and I have the utmost respect for those who serve our country, and in turn, serve all of us. So I want to do a little something special for the kids who are missing their Mom or Dad. I really thought about just running to Nordstrom’s shoe department, but it seemed like the wrong time of year.
