Charity Event a Huge Success!!!

On Sunday, November 7, we had a lot of fun for a good cause.  Thirteen au pairs from our cluster worked together to make 393 servings of snack mix for the DC Central Kitchen.  The only reason they stopped there was we ran out of cereal and pretzels.  So, I bought some more cereal on my way home and my kids and I used up the rest of the ingredients to make another 77 servings. 

That gave us a grand total of…

470 servings of snack mix!

The snack mix is being donated to the DC Central Kitchen for a program called Healthy Returns.  Healthy Returns brings healthy meals and snacks to agencies serving low-income children and at-risk youth throughout the Washington DC area. To find out more about the program visit the DC Central Kitchen website.

Special thanks to Holy Trinity Episcopal Church for allowing us to use their parish hall for the event.

Here are some more photos:




I had au pairs from France, Guatemala, Sweden, Costa Rica, Thailand, Brazil & Germany all show up and work together for this worthy cause. One au pair just arrived from orientation three days ago and another au pair will finish her extension year in two weeks and au pairs at all different stages of their au pair experience in between.  I was very proud of these ladies!

Update: Sandra and I made a trip to the DC Central Kitchen to drop off the boxes of snack mixes. Here are a couple photos from that.
