In Jan. 7 Issue
We were submitted a letter to the editor recently thanking everyone for their assistance with projects conducted at Christmas time.
We were reminded of just how many people, clubs, churches and organizations direct their attention and assistance to those in need, not just at Christmas but throughout the year.
We could not even start to name them as practically every church, every club, civic groups, motorcycle clubs, car clubs, school groups join in some manner to assist those in need.
It is my understanding a full time shelter operation will soon be in place in Russell County.
Very few of us can imagine what it would be like if we had a family, no place to live and nothing to feed our children.
It makes us shutter at the thoughts and it makes us sick to think that some little child curls up in a corner somewhere without something to eat.
It happens everyday and it happens right here in our community.
Some will say there is no reason for any child to go hungry here in Russell County as there are programs available.
This may be true if that child had a responsible parent. It is not the child’s fault, if he has parents that do not care.
It some cases, the parents or parent have little choice, if they have lost their job, home and etc.
Russell County is fortunate to have people that do care, churches, clubs and organizations that are willing to do something to help.
What a better resolution could we have for the new year that to resolve to help someone in need.
