  •  Volunteer - it is easy. It is meaningful. (24+ / 0-)

    It saves families and lives.  I have worked with St Columbanus in their food pantry and also with the exceptional Greater Chicago Food Depository and their mobile food pantry program, which this looks like it is a part of - and I know for sure your help is needed, not just tomorrow, but January - October too.  Thanksgiving and Christmas are only two of 365 days people are hungry and in need.

    You can make a difference.  In Chicago - visit www.chicagocares.org to choose from over 250 professionally designed and managed service programs each month - everything from Hunger to Children's Education.  We are the change we seek, and community isnt an accident.  It is on purpose as much as the kos is an on purpose community.

    Visit handsonnetwork.org to find a Cares/Hands on Affiliate or volunteer center near you.  Choose a day to serve in January - on the 20th we have a lot to be thankful for so that would be a great week.  Sign up, serve, do it again.

    It is easy, meaningful, and addictive.  

    "In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." - Dr, Martin Luther King Jr.
