Covered in sticky notes

The Chicks love to visit our partner agencies.  All our 90 nonprofit partners do such important work and it’s nice to get out in the field every once in awhile to see what they’re up to. So yesterday, Betsy and I visited the Hope Family Health Clinic in Westmoreland. The clinic provides medical care to…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon, Brown Sugar and Honey Buns

You won’t want these. Really, you won’t.  That is why we have eaten all of them just to save you the trouble. It’s 20 degrees in the warehouse and the Chicks have to keep their strength up. These buttery bites of bacon goodness are from a website called Oh, Bite it! Don’t get flustered. It’s…

Philosophy Tuesday: Gratitude

Most of us have more than we need. When you consider the basics (a roof over our heads, clothes on our backs and food on the table), pretty much any other material good is a “want” not a “need.” I have observed over the years that those of us who are materially blessed always think…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon Pepper Jelly Biscuits

Warehouse work is hard. Lots of lifting, toting and pallet jacking around our 5,000-square-foot palace of concrete and cinder block. So the Chicks can justify a bacon splurge every Wednesday. Just to keep our strength up, of course. This is an easy one – sweet, heat and salt. The sweet and heat come from red…

The Chicks are back

We apologize. We’ve been away. But we’re back now. See, here’s how it works in the nonprofit world. Everyone goes all out for about 50 weeks a year. And then around the middle of December we’ve just done all we can do. So, barring an emergency, we just take the rest of the year off….

The Chicks’ measure of success

Every year in early December the warehouse at CRC World Headquarters is packed to the gills with stuff – new clothing, socks and underwear, gift items, personal hygiene products – all for our nonprofit partners to give their clients in need at a time when many are not remembered any other way. So here’s our…
