HOLIDAYS: Do what you can for the homeless

Letter by Rick and Mary Ann Nicolich, Puyallup on Dec. 5, 2011 at 1:32 pm with 3 Comments »

Last month, a teacher wrote of a homeless seventh-grader (letter, 11-18).

We hope the teacher realizes that her story touched our hearts and sparked something in us. Hopefully, we’re not the only ones who were emotionally moved.

It’s a difficult time we find ourselves in during this holiday season, and it’s time to help one another. We decided to “adopt” a couple of homeless families from our local junior high. Once our families found out, the donations quickly grew.

Our wish is for everyone to evaluate your own situation and, if possible, donate to those less fortunate.

    I love the Salvation Army. Almost 100% goes to the needy.

    Well done, you and they will benefit from your largesse – but will you continue to “adopt” them in March when they will still need your compassion and support?
