To the community of Bluffton, On behalf of Troop 256, I would like to thank all the people who donated to the Bluffton Food Pantry during our Scouting for Food event. On March 23rd, scouts put out bags on people’s doors around Bluffton. On March 30th, Scouts collected the bags filled with food. We collected around 120 bags that contained 850 items. If your bag was missed or you did not get a bag, you can call Mike Metzger at 419-235-5654 to still donate. Again, thank you for all the support in this year’s food drive.
This summer, I will be riding my bicycle 3,600 miles to raise money for a worthy cause – to help families have the security of owning a simple, decent home. But I need your help to make my trek a success.
I’m participating in the Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure, which has raised more than $835,000 since 2008 to fight poverty housing. Proceeds from the ride go to the nonprofit Fuller Center for Housing, which works in partnership with families in the United States and 17 other countries to help them build or repair homes.
In the United States alone, more than 95 million people suffer from substandard or unaffordable housing conditions. We can do better.
Dear Bluffton News readers, We invite you to show your support of the Bluffton Public Library during our Friends of the Library Membership Drive for 2014. Your participation will highlight the importance of library resources for lifelong learning.
In 2013 the Friends provided financial support for:
- Installation of power-assisted door openers, giving “Access to All” - Children’s activities and summer reading programs - Professional meeting expenses for the staff - Refreshments and materials for library events
You can join the Friends by making a $5.00 membership donation made payable to Friends of the Bluffton Public Library. We also invite you to fill out a membership form including a few questions that will help us serve the library and community more effectively. We always appreciate new ideas and more people to help with our activities.
The Bluffton Elementary School PTO would like to say thank you to the Bluffton community, all of the businesses listed below, the elementary school staff, teachers, students, parents and families that donated their time, baked goods, and items for the classroom themed baskets and anyone else we may have forgotten that helped to support our Bakery Bingo event.
