Community shows its giving side

Published 10:30am Friday, November 29, 2013

Across the county, several organizations provided meals to hundreds, if not thousands, for Thanksgiving.

This may have been a prepared meal that was served or delivered, or a box of items to be used by a family to make Thanksgiving dinner.

Each of these organizations along with the volunteers should be commended for the work done to help our communities throughout the county.

Many may go hungry or not have a place to gather on Thanksgiving Day if not for the generosity of those organizations, volunteers, and local businesses that help with donations of food, supplies, or money.

These are typical circumstances for those in our county and region because of the selflessness and giving attitude

Our communities have a firm understanding of what it means to help those in need, and more importantly, we have residents who would rather help than worry about themselves.

We encourage everyone who is able to seek out and learn more about these organizations.
