Giving Back

Giving Back

Mason Varney, Reporter

I’m all about helping others in need. I don’t really think Christmas is all about presents. I think it’s a time of the year to spend time with your family and loved ones. Be thankful for what you have and try not to brag about it. Others may not be as blessed as you are. Have you ever done a good deed without the person knowing it was you ? I promise it’s the best feeling ever. It doesn’t hurt you to just drop a dollar in the Salvation Army bucket. Someone may need that dollar more than you do. It also doesn’t hurt to donate food. Some people don’t have the money to afford a huge Christmas dinner. So this year I’m challenging you to give back. I’m not saying you have to do a lot. You can do something small. The smallest things mean the most sometimes. Just try and be a good person. I think the world has forgotten how to lend a hand. During this time of the year some people struggle. It’s hard to buy gifts and afford a big dinner. My friend Zack Ward just recently donated thirteen hams to the school. It’s going to go to the kids who aren’t going to have the best Christmas. We all need help sometimes and you shouldn’t be ashamed of it.
