Is it better to give than to receive, or do we just repeat that axiom because we’ve heard it since we were children? Christmas time is perhaps one of the most stressful times of the year. Sure we love the lights, the caroling and the tangy taste of candy canes but the stress of buying gifts, sending cards, going to parties, coordinating time to spend with our families, cooking AND working make many of us want to run away to some deserted island until January.
There are many people that need help during this time of year.
There are women and children shelters throughout San Juan County that afford a safe haven to escape abuse. Many times these women and children flee with just the clothes on their backs.
The programs listed above are only possible through government grants and the generous donations of individuals. Time and time again Americans prove to be some of the most giving people in the world, not only on local levels but also internationally.
Local churches have programs to help the less fortunate not only at Christmas time but all year long.
So if you’re stumped on what to get Aunt Edna for Christmas consider giving to people, or animals, in Aunt Edna’s name.
