HOLIDAYS: Do what you can for the homeless

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.
