A community can be judged in many ways, one of these is how it deals with those less fortunate. There are many worthy causes competing for attention and Clare House is just one of several.
This November, the community once again stepped up and donated a goal-busting amount to the Clare House Food Drive. Because of this generosity, a large number of needy families will have access to food in the coming year. The donated food came from several sources — individuals, workers in their places of employment, schoolchildren in their classrooms, churches and countless individuals who bought a little extra and dropped it off.
Please accept both my thanks and the knowledge that these donations will serve a need and help make life a little better for some of our neighbors.
