There are many ways you can help the needy in Atlanta. Christmas time can be devastating for families that cannot buy their kids the gifts they have been wishing for. Some families have so many financial difficulties they can’t even put food on the table, let alone think about Christmas. What about other days of the year? People are often willing to dig down deep in their pockets at Christmas time to help the needy, but what about the 364 other days of the year? You can make a big difference in helping Atlanta’s families.
The stress of hard times affects the parents, but it also affects the kids. The entire family can get sick from stress. Worrying about how the mortgage or rent will be paid, worrying about how to provide gifts at Christmas and the everyday worries about how you will put food on that table shouldn’t have to affect the children. This examiner believes that it is better to give a helping hand to the families in Atlanta, so that stress and worry will not affect the parents and children. Parents can’t help it; worry seems to have a trickledown effect on the kids.
Here is one way that you can help the needy families in Atlanta. One way is to donate some of your money to supermarkets that provide food to the local food banks. The Publix takes the money you donate to buy the food to donate to the local food banks. The next time you are in Publix, ask how you can give. This examiner gave a donation and was given 2 Publix fabric shopping bags.
