The Golden Rule is to “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Luke 6:31). So, for LINK and our many volunteers, we feel strongly about giving back to others when they need help. It makes us feel that if we need help, that others will do the same for us. Watching over 700 families receive food on Saturday, November 21st, reinforced the knowledge that giving back is the right thing to do. Hundreds of volunteers gave hours to make sure that our Holiday Program was a success. Boy Scouts, Schools, businesses, and individuals collected more than 50,000 pounds of food and thousands of coats & clothing items. I wish I could find a way to say how incredibly appreciative we are for the support we received and the way the volunteers were able to give back to these 700+ families. It was an AMAZING thing to watch unfold. It really speaks the true meaning of Thanksgiving which is about focusing on relationships. Thanksgiving is a relationship between God and man and we celebrate this relationship and Thanksgiving with all of you this season. Volunteers Needed –
