This time of year means different things to different people, and folks celebrate or observe this season in different ways, but one things is the same for all people; the holidays bring us all a little bit closer as a community, and as a nation. The spirit of the season is one of “Good will towards men (and women)”, charity, and forgiveness, among others.
The Benton County Democrats would like to extend our heartfelt season’s greetings to you, and hope that you and yours will be able to enjoy all of the blessings of this time of year.
However, there are many in our community who will not be able to enjoy in the blessing of this season. For them, this is just another day to try to pay the mortgage, or rent, or the electricity bill, to keep food on their tables, and clothes on their children. For many of these folks, if they are able to find work at all, the day their employers close to observe the holiday is just another day without pay.
We hope that, as Democratic leaders in our community, you’ll all do what you can to reach out, and into your community, to help make this season a little better and brighter, for others.
Here are a few suggestions of places to help our community, but there are many more worthy causes. Please find one, and do what you can.
