Times are challenging; donate food
Since the weather forecast had promised another snowstorm, I went to the Arlington Heights library on March 4 to replenish my supply of books, DVDs and CDs so I could be informed and entertained during the days ahead. As I left the building, a middle-aged woman entered. She looked aside and did not meet my eye. I couldn't help but notice her shopping cart, not filled with books to be returned nor with groceries, but with belongings. I suspect she might have been a patron, possibly homeless, seeking a warm spot and a comfortable chair until the library closes at the end of the day.
I flipped on the car radio to WBEZ as I drove home. Rick Kogan was discussing the fallout of the sequester on the people of Illinois. Whether you give alms at your church or synagogue or through a local food pantry, I urge you to remember those in need during these challenging times. While few of us can offer housing, most of us can find something on the pantry shelf to share with those who need it.
