Need is greater than ever this year

I've written several stories recently about non-profit organizations working to make a difference in the lives of many less fortunate families for Thanksgiving.
Organizers of food drives and distributions all say the same thing: the need is greater than ever this year.
It may be too late to brighten a family's Thanksgiving, but I suggest that you consider giving a bit more than you normally would give to a local food pantry or toy drive this Christmas.
It will help those who have fallen on hard times, and it will make you feel good in the process.

(Getting down off my soap box now.)

We'll be having a "stuff the ambulance" toy drive very soon at work and I've no doubt that the people I work with will come through in spades for the less fortunate.

A very good reminder!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
