This weekend is the best weekend of the year. It’s the weekend my family always gets together to celebrate birthdays and Thanksgiving and the changing of the seasons, and even though we are thoroughgoing atheists, we give a little shout-out to the universe for all its many blessings.
If, like me, you have a lot to be thankful for, I hope you’ll consider passing along some of your good fortune to the Weston Area Emergency Support. At least three local organizations are supporting the WAES: the Victory Community Credit Union, Central United Church, and Weston Memorial school.
You can also give online.
(And can I, as a amateur economist, prod you a little to give money? Imagine what it must be like for the WAES to receive two cans of cranberry sauce but no gravy. Or macaroni but no ketchup. If you give cash instead of cans, they can go buy what they need most. Plus it’s super easy. You can do it online.)
You can drop off your donations, or cheques, at the VCCU.
