Thanksgiving is just a short three days away. On Thursday, many will enjoy a feast with family and friends. They will have a roof above their heads, warm clothes and so much to be thankful for. But many others will go without – without food, without shelter, without loved ones and often times without any hope. This Thanksgiving, why don’t we give thanks AND give back?
