Remember the food banks this season

Well, I guess its already the holiday season. Some radio stations are already playing holiday music, and the stores appear to have skipped Thanksgiving altogether and are going straight on to Christmas.

In these troubled times, its important to remember to help those in need. Food Bank requests are up nearly 40% from last year, and they are having trouble keeping pace. I understand that there are going to be lean Christmases everywhere across town. However, just imagine what that means to the those who are even less fortunate. As people lose their jobs, they are having nowhere else to turn.

To donate, contact United Food Bank at 480-926-4897 or www.unitedfoodbank.org.
