As a child growing up in low income housing, I can honestly say, I do not remember any Christmas when we did not have food & presents. Somehow my parents always managed to make it happen. It was due to the kindness of strangers and friends. Please give to a family you know has little or nothing, even if it is only your time, even if you are not Christian. Not for recognition, but because some day it may be you that needs it.
