It is six months later as I write this, but I often think of all the decisions that led us to that point in time. In thinking about it, a lot of the decisions were easy: where to eat, walk or drive, what time to meet, what door to exit, are all pretty straight forward decisions. And then came the big one. Help or keep walking and pass him by.
We are soon to be embarking on the United Way campaign for this year, and at first glance whether to give or not seems like a pretty straight forward decision. Many people feel like it’s no big deal if they don’t give this year, but in fact it is a big decision. Donations provide local services. Less donations equal less services. It means less food, housing, mentoring, respite care, counseling, and safety. These things are life altering for those receiving the service. When you are faced with the
opportunity to give to United Way this year please don’t pass us by, your community needs you.
