A Time for Sharing

10 Dec

We sometimes take for granted the fact that we’re able to go out to eat on a whim while others in our community may be struggling to feed their family that day.

While hunger is a problem we should be thinking about all year, the holidays seem to be the time of year that the topic comes up the most–a time when family is together and everyone is more inclined to share with others.

So this year, between all of the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping and party planning, think of how you can help feed another family by contacting one of Oxford’s local donation centers such as The Pantry, which feeds around 100 families each week.

Consider heading up a food drive at your place of employment; it doesn’t take much for everyone to go through their cupboards or do a little inexpensive shopping. All you have to do is gather up the items and deliver them.

You’ll walk away from the experience feeling some of what the holidays are truly all about.
