  Some things to Celebrate in February...

National Canned Food Month  
Yes... that really is a thing.  This is good time to think of frequent guests of local food pantries.  Food Pantries tend to get flooded with food donations between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but by February... the shelves tend to get a little sparse.  Pick up some canned foods today and make a delivery as a family.

National Shut-In
        Visitation Day
Visiting someone who is shut-in and not able to get out and about can make such a positive impact on that persons life.   
February 11th is National Shut-In Visitation day.  It's the perfect time to take the the kids to visit with an elderly friend, family member or neighbor.  Or perhaps visit an area nursing home.   Members of our Ambassador's Club will be visiting Ft. Washington Estates this month to spend some time with the residents.

National Dog Biscuit Day 
February 23rd is National Dog Biscuit Day!    
Bake a batch of yummy biscuits for some  
four-legged friends.  Deliver them to a local  
animal shelter or rescue.  Or... sell the biscuits  
and donate the money to your favorite animal charity.

Fun fact:  Over 1,600 students participated in the challenge!  Now that's impressive!  #mlksockrollchallenge
