Letters to the Editor

Good people deserve thanks

Annually during the year, I donate to all charitable organizations. I never think about the impact or effect it has. I just think that it is the right thing to do since I’m fortunate enough to be able to donate, and that it just may help someone.

This Christmas led me to know how donations (and probably taxes) help those less fortunate and down on their luck. My homeless daughter and her family received a dinner package, and the three kids received clothing and toys that even I could not have afforded. It made a wonderful holiday time for them, and I am more than grateful.

With the exception of thanking the good Lord, I don’t know which good people I have to thank, but whoever you are, thank you so much. Please know that you are loved and blessed.
