After potluck today, I had the Pathfinders assembling the plastic bags and letters for our food drive. I had 11 kids and 6 adults (including myself). We divided into five groups and hit the neighborhood.

Sometimes people just astound me. The kids I had with me were knocking on doors, but if no one answered, they’d just leave the bag hanging on the door. But every now and then when someone answered, they’d refuse to take a bag. “No, sorry. We’re not going to do that this year.”

Who are these people? Who would refuse to even take a bag? All we were asking for was a can of food. That’s about $0.69 at the grocery store.

Oh well. We are still polite to people even if they don’t want to take a bag. Tomorrow we’ll go back through there and collect the food.
