Today's Thursday Tabletop is a bit different in direction. Thomas over at My White Shirt is a local DC blogger who posted a lovely account of his day volunteering with So Others Might Eat. SOME is an organization that has been serving the DC community for 40 years, providing basic needs such as meals to the homeless and others. SOME doesn't stop at meals, also providing many other services that contribute to their mission of empowering those who are ready to make lasting changes in their life.
Stop by My White Shirt and read Thomas' account of his first time as a volunteer with the organization and the impact it made on him and those who shared the meal that day. Because sometimes we get so caught up in making it pretty (we = me, in case you didn't pick up on that) that we forget to stop and be thankful that we even have a table at all.
Thanks, Thomas for letting me repost. Hope to join you in January to volunteer.
