Following up on Saturday night...

The total take from "Stuff the Stocking," the food and winter clothing drive for the St. Aloysius warming center held at Trixie's on Saturday night was: 344 cans of food, 101 articles of clothing, 33 boxes of food and $95.62. Tone & Niche, the organizers, spent the cash on more clothing today. Trixie's had a very good turnout and the pile of food and clothes was huge. The music was first-rate, too.

I gave cash. The poll turned out to be no help because there was one vote for each option. But I went with cash figuring that they knew better than I what they needed. The misgiving I had was that cash requires an extra step to be converted into the things the warming center needs. But they had method for dealing with that, so I believe it turned out OK. It warmed my heart to see something good like this happening, since there's been so much that isn't good happening in the world these days.
