Food donation drive thanks
To the Editor:
We of the Helping Hands Mission have a wonderful task before us. It is sharing with you the joy of living in a community that knows how to care for each other. Recently, Charlie, a local businessman, came to Helping Hands Mission to find out if we would be interested in participating in a food donation drive at the Family Fare Plaza in Gladwin. We could only respond with “yes.”
So it was held on Saturday, Nov. 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the help of the Helping Hands Mission signs from S&H Printing to give the people shopping at Family Fare direction and the opportunity to donate food or money to the mission. Many did so, including one man who donated his deer for venison meat for the food boxes given out at the Mission. Lambert Meat Market will be processing the deer and we are all very glad for such a donation and support.
As we give thanks to this particular expression of community compassion in action, we also give thanks for all the people and groups within Gladwin County and often beyond who give of their time, talents, and treasure to make our communities places where we can make life a little bit better for anyone in need.

To the Editor:
To the people of our community, this COVID-19 pandemic is requiring a lot from each of us, none more than our restaurants, bars, gyms and theaters. While our prayers to God to get His act together may not put the coin in the box, we walk with everyone who finds that caring about one another is not only about serving with a smile, but trusting others to make sure no one is ever abandoned. Thank you to everyone of our restaurants, bars, gyms and theaters for your care and commitment.
Rev. Karen Blatt
