It's a comfort having good friends, and visiting with them over a cup of tea adds a special sweetness to life. Add a lively chat about books, and well, you've got the makings of heaven on earth!
Nellie's Teas & Gifts has been hosting a book club for a couple of years, and part of the charm is their passion for tea, but also compassion for their neighbors. The Nellie's book club has been giving modestly but steadily every month to our Neighbors Helping Neighbors Fund. Sometimes we use the money to pay an overdue electric bill, sometimes their gift is used to help an elder pay for medications or get a little extra at the grocery store, other times we use it to pay for clothes or a new pair of boots. Once we used the funds to help a neighbor with an unexpected travel expense. Each month the amount varies, but that it comes in regularly is a big help to us. Like a good friend who checks in on you to see how you're doing... Nellie's keeps a friendly eye on us, sharing more than a little encouragement every time they do.
