Charity: an act or feeling of generosity; giving aid to the poor.
Once or twice a year the media brings charity toward the top of the agenda. I notice it the most from Thanksgiving to New Year’s. Coat drives and food drives pop up with malls and businesses serving as collection points.
This is good. Sharing and giving are two important lessons that should be learned early in life. Please don’t limit the time or make it only during the end of year holidays.
Empty cupboards and closets persist year round. Food banks and thrift stores appreciate donations any month or week of the year.
