Giv­ing is re­ceiv­ing too

The Covington News - - Local news -

Here are some thoughts as you rush around to pick up those last minute Christ­mas gifts for your loved ones. You don’t have to drive down the road and fight those last minute shop­ping crowds and traf­fic; you can find those gifts right here in New­ton County and So­cial Cir­cle.

The prices are com­pet­i­tive, the strain on you will be less and you will be sup­port­ing our lo­cal econ­omy.

We are grate­ful that so many of you have re­sponded to the food pantry needs, the Ro­tary Christ­mas Stock­ing Fund, the Sal­va­tion Army bell ringers and your own churches’ re­quests for help for your neigh­bors this Christ­mas sea­son.

If you have been too busy or just haven’t thought about it, there is still time to con­trib­ute what you can. As we have said be­fore we have no doubt that what you give from your heart will be re­paid to you many times over. If you look at the bot­tom of this ed­i­to­rial page, you will see a list of some agen­cies to which you can still give.

If you can’t con­tact one of th­ese agen­cies, e-mail us here at pca­vanaugh@cov­news.com, and we will see that your gift is re­ceived by the folks who need it the most.
