Grow the circle, grow the giving

Sometimes there are no better community conversations to have than ones focused on people doing good works. This week, Jason and Nick sit down with Eastland Giving Circle board member Christine Foresee and founding member, Jane Stepp. Eastland Giving Circle utilizes annual donations from its membership to award a grant to one organization each year. Foresee and Stepp talk about what drew them into this organization and how it chooses its annual grant recipients. 

Eastland Giving Circle's grant application is currently ongoing and ends on Sept. 10. For more information visit

Note: Due to technical difficulties — and someone's insistence on a vacation — we are unable to bring you thoughts from the Taco Review Board. Fear not, your hosts have not been forced to go two weeks without delicious locally-made tacos. The taco reviews will return after this brief hiatus.
