The beauty of the holiday season is not just the cool refreshing air, the nights with the clear skies, the rows of lighted homes, or the vacation time to spend with family. Its the joy you bring to those in need, the help you can offer to one another, the fulfillment that pours into your heart in return.
Many organizations this year are putting together festive events that drive toy donations for those kids who are not as privileged as others. Some gave away turkeys to needing families for Thanksgiving. But we had a chance to visit Houston Food Bank to see what all the ruckus was about over there.
In a warehouse of high stacked shelving full of pallets of foods of all types, more pallets were coming in by the load. Its an amazing site to see! Adding to that warehouse was two crate loads of food provided by the employees of Amerigroup here in Houston. Their COO, Cathy Mitchell was even there helping unload bags of food and stack crates!
The spirit of giving was truly in the air!
