I absolutely love this time of the year! The giving increases, the spirit of joy is in the air and we pause to pay tribute and remember what/who matters most. As we wrap up our semester and prepare for the new year, let’s make sure we not only are thinking about what we have on our agenda. Let’s make sure others in our community and our family and friends feel safe, are warm and have their basic needs met. Check in on the older couple in your neighborhood, spare some change in the red kettles and think about the reason for the season. Enjoy the holidays, enjoy your break and let’s prepare for what’s to come!
