Last Tuesday I met up with a friend for a play date at a park. We were looking forward to going to this park because it had new spray/water feature recently added. Perfect for this warm Seattle weather we have been having. Once we arrived we realized there was a lunch program going on. Free lunch? Awesome! Who turns down a free lunch right?
But who gives away a free lunch?
United Way is who.
They created a summer program at this park to feed kids and teens who need a good, healthy lunch. So many families have a hard time feeding their kids in the summer without the assistance of school programs, etc.
I felt guilty in partaking in this free meal since we are fortunate to be able to feed our family, but I did vow to make a nice donation to the United Way.
I think it was a good reminder for me to give thanks to agencies all around the country who try to make things a little easier on those who could really use the help. So many of these organizations go unnoticed, and we don't realize all they do for the community.
I encourage you, if you are able to do a little research and donate your time, or money to a local charity.
I know we are going to.
