I'm Krysten and have been an intern at
Canal Street since the beginning of the school year. First off, thanks
so much for your continued donations to the program. The folks here
really appreciate it, and it means a lot to know that community members
are so consistently supporting our Veterans. Kim just told me that you
may have the means to donate or find crafting supplies. We are hoping to
have some type of a kids group with our families, and if you were able
to wrangle up some art supplies- markers, paper, kid scissors, finger
paint, regular paint, aprons for their bodies, crayons- really anything,
or some type of gift certificate, we would be able to put it to great
 This person needs our help to help the kids at center.Please help.

Alittle Good Cooking

Amazing what Douglas did with 5lbs of white chocolate chips. He made a devils food cake stuffed with chips then melted more chips and cream and spread it over the top. yummy. This is a quote from Douglas:
"It is really cool that the Chocolate factory enjoyed the pictures. It adds a new facet to what I do, usually pleasing the eater is what I like now we are pleasing the manufacturer thats cool.

As for items the soldiers here have enjoyed the maple syrup, we have pancakes some mornings we also do a make your own waffle bar they enjoy that. There eyews light up when i put out the maple syrup. With other items I kind of enjoy the suprise I get when opening. Maybe more items that we can use for cooking. Sauces, seasonings, mixes etc.

I really Thank You for all you do." Also:
"Just thought I would let you know that you made about 65 Soldiers forget

they were in Adfghanistan. We made a Devils Food w/White Chocalate cake"                                           The Chocolate was donated by  out of St.Albans,VT  thanks to them we made some soldiers smile.
