Giving to less fortunate makes holiday brighter

While to most, this time of year may be the best, most festive time of the year, for a lot of people and families in our city it couldn’t be worse. While the holidays mean family, gifts and celebrating our lives and faith, it also can be the most depressing time of the year.  

For a lot of our residents, things were good a couple of years ago. Now, they are struggling to get back on their feet, with more people and families homeless or living so close to the edge that becoming homeless is just a short step away.

We should keep in mind that for most of us, with everything that’s happened over the last couple of years, it could be us and our families that are on or have fallen over the edge and have little or nothing left!

Times are still tough, and asking people to give to the less fortunate may still be tough. Even if we can give nothing but a few cans of food to our local food banks or donate some of our time to help out families who are worse off than we are, it can only help make this time of year better for those who are still falling on hard times. By helping others who are worse off, maybe — just maybe — we can make all of our holidays a little brighter!
