There are so many good things about this event—let me count the ways. First, it’s a good cause simply because hunger in our fair city is not seasonal and doesn’t end when we put away the Christmas decorations. Second, if you take canned goods, baby food, diapers, etc. to Nest you get a discount on purchases up to 20%—the best part being that if you are the bringer of the most, you get a sweet $500 gift certificate. Third, Nest always throws fun parties (I know because I’ve been to all of them), with great energy and interesting people. The party is February 9 and benefits City Square. But, don’t be the Scrooge that only brings an old dusty can of turnips. Nobody wants them, and besides their “use by” date was probably 2008.
