The time has come to say goodbye, at least for now. As the semester is coming to a close, so is my blog. I have decided to take a hiatus until the the New Year. I was very please with my work so far, some of my favorite post have been the Woof Walk, my Bookmates literacy program training, and the Campout for Hunger. As always, I encourage you to get involved in your community. No matter how big or small, the philosopher Aesop once said “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” Happy Holidays!

Besides brightening up my mornings that have taking part in many charitable events throughout the years. Following annual tradition, the morning team camped out for hunger for an entire week. They faced the cold winter elements with their morning show team, broadcasting live each morning.

Preston and Steve camped out in a RV in the parking lot at the Metroplex Shopping Center in Plymouth Meeting, PA (Montgomery County) This charity event is the largest single sourced food drive in the country.
