One of the highest needs for the food shelves is right after a major Holiday. And the short time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is even a harder time.
It is a short time to re-stock the shelves and between bad weather and the extra expenses for our own Holidays, we sometimes don't give like we usually do.
This year my wife and I have pledged to give what we normally do for this time of the year.
For us it just seams like the right thing to do.
