Poverty seems to be increasing in our neighborhoods, but what can we do?
I was recently in the Glen Oaks Village shopping area and saw men and women, young and old, begging. Some I spoke to were either homeless, hungry or having mental problems. I found myself homeless over 40 years ago and truly feel their pain.
What is the state, city and federal government doing for these unfortunate souls?
More of us should help the needy and poor. Donate to food kitchens, food pantries and community and church groups that help the poor. Maybe in a small way we as individuals can make a better community by caring for those in the most need.
