These are difficult times for many American families, but the generous spirit of giving has shone brightly from coast to coast. Our community hears of local needs and donations of money, food, clothing and simple friendship are offered to surrounding communities. Food banks often run low and need replenishing fast. Within a few hours of desperate calls, Big Canoers send money or shop for groceries to help those who otherwise might go hungry. The Leadership Big Canoe class recently loaded up cars and trucks with bags and boxes of food to deliver to area food banks. Help is always needed. Check with the Big Canoe Chapel to learn how you can help or contact charities directly to see what’s needed.
