It’s that time of year again – a time for fun, food, friends, family, shopping and gifts! Unfortunately, there are some in our community who can only meet the cost of necessities like food and shelter. For those, this time of year can be extremely stressful as the expectations of children can be very hard to fill. If you have any extra time or money, it can go a long way to helping those less fortunate to enjoy the spirit of the holidays. The pleasure of be able to give is the most wonderful feeling of all and at Christmas it brings to the life the true meaning of the season! Let’s do all we can this year to make it a great holiday for everyone!
