Helped needed throughout the year

November 22nd, 2007 · No Comments

Despite what your local news station and newspaper might lead you to believe, poverty and hunger are issues year round and not just during Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Your local food pantry appreciates your help now, but even more importantly, during the rest of the year when they’re not the center of attention. And community non-profits that help the elderly, families in crisis and the poor would welcome your donations and attention throughout the year – especially during the summer.

So watch the reports and read the stories, learn about those in need in your own communities and remember that they are still there when the turkey is gone and the tree has been put away and the holidays are just a memory.
