Today’s coping tip is to buy an extra item and donate to a local food bank.
The food banks in my area are only open limited days, especially post pandemic. However, they often have volunteers at various stores this time of year. I’ve made it a point to get their list (usually with a photo to save paper) and go shopping.
This week I grabbed a bunch of extra items, aiming for the items they have less of, and adding in some fun things like extra cake/cookie mix and frosting.
Most everyone enjoys a treat this time of year.
I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQL Server Central newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here. All my coping tips are under this tag.
