Great Neck Notebook: March 7, 2012

From the Heart

I often wonder when I make a charitable donation whether my donation made a difference. I never wonder about that with the INN because I’ve seen the difference that every meal makes, the difference that shelter makes from the cold, the difference that hope makes from despair.

I offer you the words of one of the INN’s guests, who expressed their thankfulness far better than I ever could. “You turned on the lights, so I could see. You opened the door, so I could come in from the cold. You fed me all the food I needed for today so tomorrow I can try to find work, or a better place to live.

“You also gave me a chance to feel better about myself and think tomorrow may even be happy. Hope knowing this can make you feel good.  Thanks again.”

If you’ve had some blessings in your life, please consider sharing them with someone going through a tough time—someone who needs our help and compassion. Your donation—in whatever amount you can afford—makes a huge difference.

Donations may be mailed to: Dave Golbert, 7 Lee Court West, Great Neck, NY  11024. Please make your check payable to:  The Interfaith Nutrition Network.

In the words of the sages, “Blessed are those who share with those who have less.”
