Volunteer Experiences: Book-O-Ween at CentroNía Public Charter School

November 18th 2013 by Anna Trainer

Growing up, I was the very definition of a bookworm. Both my mother and my aunt were librarians, and our house was constantly filling up with books and magazines. Even now as an adult, I have a hard time putting a book down, and I can often be found reading something new, even at three …

A Day in the Life of…Kate Bakes

November 1st 2013 by Stephanie Gibney

Most of the previous businesses I decided to work with for the blog I kind of went in to blind. I knew of the business or product but didn’t really know anything about the people behind it. Kate from Kate Bakes was a little different in that we’d had lunch once when I was trying …

Where I chose to volunteer…

September 6th 2013 by Stephanie Gibney

I’m going to cover a variety of topics in my blog posts, but when it comes to volunteer work the topic closest to my heart will always be animal rescue and welfare.  Animals do not have a voice to advocate for their needs.  They are dependent on human kindness, and completely vulnerable to human cruelty. …

A Day in the Life of…New Columbia Distillery a.k.a Home of Green Hat Gin

  My expectations… Can you imagine what it’s like to own a gin distillery? In my mind I’m assuming they drink gin all day. I’m envisioning the owner’s offices have the Rickey on tap.
