This will not be the first or the last letter that you will receive this time of the year.
And this will also not be the first or the last letter that you will take for granted.
But not far from your home . . . right here in our neighborhood . . . live individuals and families who lead a life of stark contrast to our own.
They will likely receive no holiday letters this year—just as they haven't in the years before.
They will likely go hungry despite the time of the year-just as they likely did yesterday and the day before.
They will likely have no laughter to share with others . . .
They will likely have no gifts to give or unwrap . . .
They will likely have no one to share this time of the year with . . .
I am not going to ask, "Why don't you do something to help the homeless?"
What I am going to ask instead is . . . why don't we?
Please donate to the Hungry To Help food drive.
Not only will the homeless be fed warm home-cooked meals this holiday weekend, they will each also receive a holiday letter.
Please drop off your donations (food or checks made out to Hungry To Help, Thingamajig Ministries) at our Donation Center at [Address].
Thank you for lending a hand.
P.S. I am a Thingamajig Ministries volunteer. If you have any questions, I can be reached at XXX-XXXX.
