If you've read our blog before, you probably already know how much we love our volunteers. They are dedicated, talented, creative and they love the babies!
Today, one of our regular volunteers, Sherry Park, brought in lots of jars of yummy homemade jam! I'm a sucker for homemade jam. When I was a kid, I would often help my grandmother make jam in her kitchen. Grandma lived close to a cherry orchard where you could pay to pick your own cherries, so we would go pick our cherries together and then take them home and make tons of jars of jam. Those are still some of my fondest childhood memories.
Anyway, now that you understand my deep love for jam, I'll get back to Sherry. She brought in all of these jars of homemade jam today that she is selling for $10 a jar. Even the presentation of the jars is pretty! All of them are trimmed with fabric. You can tell she put a lot of work into not only making the jam, but packaging it. But the story doesn't stop there. Sherry is donating all of the money from her jam sales to Infant Crisis Services! She's calling it "Jammin' for the Babies." Aren't our volunteers creative?!
Thanks Sherry for devoting your time, talents and financial resources to help the babies! And thank you for making me reflect back on one of my favorite memories. Can't wait to try the Plum Crazy Peach!
