A resolution to help needy
This morning I witnessed what I believe was someone in need. I was dropping things off at the Salvation Army in Summerside. Walking ahead of me into the store was a young gentleman carrying a young girl. He looked around and left. As my eyes followed them I had a feeling he was looking for the breads and things sometimes available. I noticed there was none. I took the snacks I had in the car and went to his car and asked if he’d like them. He accepted and said “I’ll take what I can get.” I retreated to my car and heard “thank you and God bless.”
I write this in the hopes that stores might give more thought to giving excess produce to such a worthwhile cause through the outlet of the Salvation Army, which does so much already to reach out to people in need.
I write this also as a reminder to myself and to you to waste less and to seek ways to help right here. No child anywhere and especially on this Island should ever go hungry.
It’s never too late to make a new resolution. Marion Murphy, Millvale
