A Much Needed Break
For many of us, the extended Thanksgiving weekend marks the beginning of the holiday season. A time to share a good meal, spend time with your family, and shop till you drop. It is a time when we give thanks for the simple things - a healthy family, warm shelter, and a good meal. During this time, we often think of those that are less fortunate, families who have a child struggling with cancer, or those wondering where they will sleep for the night or from where their next meal will come. It is important to remember that each of us can make a difference during this season. Donate your time to a worthy charity and help serve meals at your local shelter. Or if your time is limited, donate money to causes like Second Harvest, or to children's organizations like Make a Wish or your local YMCA or community organization. The ideas are endless and every little bit counts. We can all benefit from being kind to one another and offering our helping hand during the holiday season. We are thankful for all of our readers and customers and wish you and your family a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
