While this site–and, its editor–did not join the Morristown landscape until the summer of 2010, it has definitely wormed its way into our hearts. So, for that, bravo.
That said, with that love comes a certain feeling of obligation to give back sometimes. In the spirit of Patch's "Give 5" initiative (next up on Thursday), here are five ways we can all give back to Morristown right now.
You Need to Know About Your Blood:It's red, it keeps you alive, and it may also keep someone else alive someday. But, only if you donate it. Morristown Medical Center is more than happy to take some of that blood from you, either through whole blood donations (which can be given every 56 days) or via platelet donations (which can be given every two weeks, but the donation process can last up to 90 minutes). Check this out if you're interested.
You Need to Know About Puppy Love: Not everyone is prepared to adopt an animal. But, there are plenty of folks who may be able to provide foster homes on a temporary basis. 911 Dog Rescue, a new volunteer organization, is seeking people who can provide temporary foster homes for dogs while they look for "forever homes." Food and supplies are provided to volunteers for the dogs.
You Need to Know About Picking Up: One easy way to give back is to simply pick up–after yourself, others. Grab a leftover plastic shopping bag (and, a pointy stick if the thought of picking up someone else's stuff totally ish-es you out) and go for a walk. You're bound not to return empty handed (er, bagged). You may even need to take two bags. While it's not as high-profile as working the line at a soup kitchen, it's just as worthwhile.

"For Gordon Crawford:
Helped me buy a home
Gordon has helped me buy and sell several properties over the last ten years, with my most recent purchase in 12/2011 in Morris Township. I am always blown away by the expert advice that Gordon and his team bring to these transactions, and the excellent referrals to various specialty contractors that they have given me over the years. And of course, Gordon is a great guy and a lot of fun to work with!"
