The radio station I listen to was advertising a canned food drive coming up later this week. Many people feel charitable between Thanksgiving and Christmas and donate then. But food pantries are open year round. Hunger for the poor and homeless doesn’t happen 6 weeks a year but 52 weeks a year. Many of the food banks in my state are low on supplies. Some have even shut down because they are completely out of resources. Chances are that food banks in your area are in the same boat. So, the next time you’re at the grocery store, pick up an extra can or two for your local food bank. A little act of charity can make a big difference. If you don’t know where to donate, check out Feeding America‘s website.
Tis the season
