It’s no secret that the economy stinks. Funds are depleting, gas prices are rising and a positive morale is evaporating. When things seem like they can’t possibly get any worse, it’s time to wake up and realize there are people out there who are struggling harder than you or I could ever imagine.
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to volunteer this past Tuesday at theShepherd’s Table Soup Kitchen in Downtown Raleigh. Approximately 300 men, women and children walked through the cafeteria line within one hour. Different ages, different races, different backgrounds all came together for one reason – to be fed.
I encourage you to take some time out of your schedule and lend a helping hand at an area organization. Every business is struggling right now and non-profits are no exception. They are in desperate need of money, supplies and volunteers. Give a little of your time and make a big difference. Wouldn’t you want someone to be there if you were holding the cafeteria tray?
