Feed the Hungry All Year Long

Dear Bay Weekly:

            The citizens of our area are well known for their giving spirit throughout the holiday season. However, once the decorations come done and folks get back into their regular routine, donations to the organizations that supply much-needed help to those in need and at risk in our community historically drop. With each of us weathering tough economic times, there is a real fear that this year will see an even greater need.

            Remember, no gift is too small … and the need is so great!

–Wayne M. Taylor, Annapolis
