A res­o­lu­tion to help needy

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

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
