To the editor,
As we shop for Christmas presents for our family and friends, it is important for us to remember to give to the less fortunate. I learned the importance of giving during my senior project with The ARK, a home that serves homeless women and families. The ARK accepts food, clothing and toys for its residents. It also accepts gifts of money. No gift is too small and all gifts are appreciated and put to good use. You can also give the gift of your time by volunteering at the agency.
The ARK is just one organization that needs our gifts, no matter what those gifts may be. Let’s make sure everyone has a Merry Christmas this year, not just our family and friends. I hope you will join me in giving to The ARK.
