“Speak Out” is an expression of opinion from the Editorial Board of WBTV, and is presented by General Manager, Scott Dempsey.
As the weather begins to cool, and the familiar sounds of holiday cheer approach our homes and work places, we all begin to brace ourselves for that most wonderful time of the year. The excitement of loved ones, great food, and even a day off from hard work, are something most look forward to.
We tend to forget just how many people do not get to experience these wonderful gifts. The holidays can be lonely, and a reminder of what families and other individuals may not have.
The WBTV editorial board encourages you to not get caught in the hustle and bustle that we all love around the holidays this year, but to take time to remember the community.
Know that there are those that need love and support shown to them. Whether it is a child in need that you buy a toy, or a family you provide dinner for. These are the things that people will be forever thankful for. The smallest donation can make a huge difference in our community today.
If you are unsure where to start or how to make a difference, you can visit
wbtv.com/unitedway, where your donation will go to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community for a common good.
This holiday season WBTV urges you to go beyond, and give to those in need.
Tell us what YOU think. SpeakOut@wbtv.com.
