The cost of kindness remains the same
Having the opportunity to represent organizations that help the community in so many ways is something that is near and dear to my heart. Interviewing the workers and volunteers of these organizations has given me better insight into the needs of the community.
I attended college for social work, but life did not lead me in that career direction. I am thankful for my current position as a staff writer with the Daily American Republic because it has not only allowed me to serve the community, but also to become an active member of it.
Local organizations such as the Bread Shed, St. Vincent De Paul and Haven House, just to name a few, are vital components of this community.
These shelters and food banks do not just offer food, hygiene items and necessities to those in need, they also offer hope. The hope there is always someone somewhere that cares. There is always hope and always help out there.
These giving organizations show people who feel they have been forgotten that they have not. They have programs to assist people young and old, veterans, the elderly, the homeless and those who are just down on their luck.
The cost of everything around us is rising daily, but the cost of kindness remains the same.
Note: Be sure to check out our grateful people series. The first installment of this series begins with the Bread Shed and will be a free-access article.
