And what about the other ten months of the year? I know we all make a special effort to reach out to people during Thanksgiving and Christmas, but do we forget those same people the rest of the year?
I also wonder about our local support groups. Are we all working together so that more people get help? Or are we working separately? Are we endeavoring to meet the needs of people in July as well as in December?
I wish there was one central location where we could all go to help, where we could coordinate our efforts of support for our fellow citizens. I realize several churches have food pantries, but wouldn’t it be great if it could be organized into one, like, for instance, the back to school fair is an effort by many agencies? I know these groups, churches, agencies are not all the same. They don’t believe the same, their mission statements are not the same, they are ethnically not the same. But I do believe they are all involved for the same reason. To help the community. What do you say? Can we all get together and care about the people in our community as a whole?
Well, it’s a thought.
