This Thanksgiving a lot of people will be spending it alone thanks to the current COVID crisis. Due to the isolation and economic situation that many of us face, I want to issue a challenge to those of us who might be able to make a difference.
While some kitchens might be closed off to the needy this holiday, there are other ways of making sure needy people get help. Sign up for your neighborhood’s Nextdoor feed and monitor the threads for people who are looking for help. We have started putting in extra time for our side cash job so we can start a little fund for those who might be looking for help.
Remember you do not have to set loads of cash to the side to help someone. In most cases, as little as 20 bucks will help a family of two celebrate Thanksgiving. Food has this uncanny way of making people feel better, so I challenge you to make a difference in your community.
I would also like to give a shot out to Walmart for looking out for the people in their communities. https://www.foxbusiness.com/lifestyle/walmart-free-thanksgiving-dinner
