Letter: Please remember the less fortunate

For some, the holidays are a celebration of life, religion, love and family. For others, the holiday season is a cruel reminder of personal misfortune. 

This year, as the 2017 holiday season runs its course quickly and hurriedly, the Salvation Army hopes holiday shoppers and revelers will choose to make a difference in people’s lives all year round with a simple and very effective action: making a donation to a Salvation Army Red Kettle.

It is my belief that it may ensure a deserving child receives a Christmas gift, help an addict get clean, find someone a warm home, increase an unemployed parent’s job skills, or get a kid off the streets and back into school, where the future is brighter.

You may not know who or how the contribution will help, but you can be assured that it will. There is an “army” of people making sure of it. During the rest of the year, the Salvation Army service is just as important, although it may be less conspicuous. The Salvation Army serves hundreds of thousands of people in need throughout South Carolina, with programs that change lives for the better.

Please give in 2018. As a result of our economy and the lasting impact of national tragedies, Salvation services have been in demand as never before and the simple act of making a donation to a Salvation Army Red Kettle can make a big difference in the peoples’ lives in the coming years. It can turn a cruel reminder of personal misfortune into hope for the future.

It is also my belief that the economy makes giving more important.

Do your part to help the less fortunate.
