Consider helping out

To the Editor:

To whom much is given, much is expected. – Luke 12:48

As we look back on 2013, we have received much and therefore much will be expected of us in 2014.

As I think of what will be expected of me, I think of all those in need and what I can do to help. If you’re pondering this as well, I have the perfect opportunity for you: Please donate to or create a team to help the Kids Against Hunger food pack scheduled for Feb. 15. This is a great opportunity to start your 2014 year off.

This is also the day after Valentine’s; maybe you could put together a team of couples to celebrate, or just to volunteer.

Creating a family team is also a great way to do something together, and then follow up with another activity after you pack. Doing this is also a learning opportunity for the whole family.

Whatever your reason, I just hope you will help as we are in need of donations and teams for packing.

Youth in our community also are putting together a concert to help raise funds on Jan. 15. If you would like to donate or have questions, please contact Beth Reeve at (507) 235-5107.

Please send contributions payable to Kids Against Hunger to: Beth Reeve, 918 Summit Dr., Fairmont, MN 56031. To sign up your team or to keep watching for more information, check our website at

I hope you will give this great opportunity sincere thought and join in helping those less fortunate.

Mary Cole,

Kids Against Hunger Committee
