Reflecting back upon the Holidays many of you may have given something charitable to those less fortunate. Many of those with the ability to give have given over the Holidays and now comes a lull in the amount of charity given to needy causes. However, the need is still there, perhaps the need is even greater with the full on sought of winter. Now is a good time consider a donation to your local food banks. Food comes in handy now as families disposable incomes are used towards energy needs. Items such as Mac & Cheese, Spaghetti, Tuna, EctÃ¢â¬Â¦ can be bought in quantity inexpensively. Check with you local food banks and see if the accept non food items also. With longer nights light bulbs do not last as long. Personnel hygiene items are another staple in need. Throughout our nations rich history ordinary citizens have stepped forward and done extraordinary things for others in need. Let the start of 2006 continue this unselfish tradition. God Bless and Take Care.
