Letters from Grandma: Help where you can during troubled times

Dearest Max and Piper:

Grandma is so excited that I will be able to go out and play with her friends at the senior center this month! 

It has been so long since I have seen any of my friends, I bet bingo will be a wild ruckus on Wednesday. 

Edith and Ermina sometimes heckle the man who calls out the numbers in German with some funny jokes. When those two get started, it is more entertaining than the bingo games! 

Before I forget, I want to let you know, Grandma sent you some gifts for your birthdays this month. I hope you have lots of fun on your special days. 

Did you know Grandma still has to do chores too? No matter how old you get, that is one of the things in life that never goes away; chores or taking baths. 

Grandma is finally getting a new refrigerator, so I must clean out the old one. I am amazed that I could find things in my refrigerator from the year you were born! 

I think for the month of June, everyone should look for all the cans in the pantry with expirations dates in 2020 and donate them to a local food bank. I think right now there are so many people that need a little bit of help, people that usually do not find themselves in this situation of being quarantined and not working. 

In our area we have Tabatha’s Way that provides food for anyone that needs food. We also have the food banks by the university. There are also other things besides food that we can donate. Habitat for Humanity “Restore” in Spanish Fork or Orem, (Grandma likes to shop there too). 

They take in all kinds of construction things, as well. They will also take the screen door I have that still works great or my refrigerator. They accept everything from roofing to windows and everything in between. 

It is a wonderful place to go if you want to improve, update, or fix your home. 

Donating clothes at your local thrift stores will help so many more people. 

Please send Grandma some pictures of what you donated. 

Well, Miss Piper and Max, this is going to be an exciting month for all three of us! 

All our birthdays are this month, and Grandma’s is one of those prehistoric, bicentennial, diamond jubilee, centurion, special years, and I am so glad to be able to celebrate it with you. 

I find it amazing and a feat of ingenuity that your mom and dad arranged your birthdays to occur a few days before mine.

I love you so much and so proud of you two. You are so young, but I know that you will do fantastic things in the world just like your Mommy and Daddy. See you soon. (Serve Daily submission.)
