Glad to see you! Come on in . . .
Our old friend Sharon Black, who we met at Christmas time providing a gigantic outdoor feast for the homeless (link to December blog post: "Gilding the Pill" is http://comfortspiral.blogspot.com/2008/12/gilding-pill.html )
has been recognized with the President's Volunteer Service Award for more than 20 years of direct service to Honolulu's neediest.
She started out pulling the food around Chinatown in her son's little red wagon, and her Great Danes always accompany her because "They make people smile" she says.
Every Saturday, hundreds of hungry people join them for the feast.
