New attitudes prevail and as we spring clean, we are also purging. The things we no longer fit into are going into the garage sale. We are even down-sizing, so to speak, the household by simplifying decor.
If we do not sell it, then off to our chosen charities...
The St. Agatha Center is a food pantry and assistance program for the less fortunate. They have a grand Christmas party each year for their more than 175 client families. They can take all the holiday decorations, even a Christmas tree, and reallocate it to those in need of assistance. They also take small furniture and appliances to help the former homeless in getting set-up in an apartment.
All our adult clothes go to the ScholarShop because of the great work that they do to make strides in education and scholarships for the less fortunate.
Very worthy, noble causes all. Whatever you choose to share your abundance of riches--time, talent, or treasures--do so so with a loving and understanding heart. For one day you may be asking a community outreach program for aid yourself.
