It's Time to Start Thinking About Thanksgiving

I've been thinking about Thanksgiving for at least a month, but it's also time to start thinking about others. I just received my reminder letter for my annual contribution to the Food Bank for New York City's Thanksgiving Appeal. The Food Bank provides food to over 1,000 food assistance programs in the city to make sure that our less fortunate neighbors get a decent Thanksgiving meal. This year, perhaps even more than in recent years, it's crucial that those of us who can afford to make a donation do so. A gift of $25 or $35 will provide a Thanksgiving meal to a needy family in New York. Don't be a jive turkey: go for $35.

If you're not in New York, please consider giving to a food assistance program in your community. And, of course, there's always Feeding America (formerly America's Second Harvest).
