We live close to the snow, but far enough away from the snow that we don’t have to shovel it from our driveways. Many of us are fortunate to enjoy the company of family and friends during these coming days. I hope we will consider sharing some of what we have with people we don’t know and may never see. There are people in our community that can use a helping hand. Not all of us know how to provide a helping hand, but there are many organizations in our community that can benefit from volunteering and donations. If you’re not sure who to give to, consider Catholic Charities Family Support Center; they accept coats, sleeping bags, socks, tarps . . . Yes, they accept cash donations too.
