“Share your blessings, share your wealth, share what you have.” – Tiesta Tea’s President, Patrick Tannous
With our Spread The Warmth event less than one month away, we are absolutely ecstatic about the amount of volunteers that have signed up, the TONS of generous donations we have received and the wonderful support we are being given from the community. We are well on our way to DOUBLING our efforts from last year and will hopefully be able to reach our goal of warming 1,000 hearts & giving out 300 Warmth Kits!
So far, we have collected over 70 Warmth Kits that were donated from individuals in our community and over 70 volunteers will be joining us to pass out hot tea and Warmth Kits. In addition, we have received generous donations from Think Jerky, Button & Zipper, Fred Water, Jewel-Osco, Westin Hotels, Dietz & Watson, Accion, Chicago Beverage Company, Spice Adams and Big Time Products that will be essential in helping us fill up more Warmth Kits. Every little bit helps and there will always be more hearts to warm. So we are asking for your help. If you have any toiletries, blankets or warm clothing items to donate please click here. Thanks to everyone who attended and donated to Spread The Warmth during our Tiesta Tea 2016 Holiday Party clothing drive!
By the way, did we mention that former Chicago Bears defensive tackle, Anthony ‘Spice’ Adams, will be one of our volunteers? So if you are going to pass out tea or drive during the event, you are in for a special treat!
We are so excited for our 2nd Annual Spread the Warmth event and CANNOT WAIT until January 20th, 2017 when we get to help spread a little warmth and a little love throughout Chicago.
