Among the encouraging stories in the news, here’s one that is from our local area, and in fact, our county. The Christmas Mother program is one I have had involvement with through our church. Despite a difficult economy, donations have been strong.
From the article:
Area Christmas Mother programs that raise money and deliver holiday cheer to the needy through toys, food, clothing and other assistance have not seen a downturn in giving despite the weak economy.
Many programs have seen their fundraising goals met or expect them to be this season. And nearly all of the programs are serving more families than last year — with more volunteers, proving that the Christmas spirit is not dictated by the economy.
Is this confirmation of our discussion on Could We Benefit from the Economic Crisis?. I think so.
