The Mahler Family

A couple of years ago, I featured local teacher Teri Mahler as a Seven's Hero. Eleven years ago, she started the Mahler Food Drive in her neighborhood. It actually started as Teri's birthday party, and instead of gifts she asked for donations for the Idaho Foodbank. It took off!

Now, it's grown into a big block party, and all the participants bring money and food for the Idaho Foodbank's Backpack Program. It's gone from a small family gathering to a huge event! 

Here is the story I did on her in 2010: 

Fast forward to 2012, and she's now featured in Woman's Day magazine this month! I was so happy to hear that she is being honored as a woman who is making a difference in her community.

Here's the article: 

Congratulations to Teri Mahler and her family!
