Our readers are helping to deliver smiles

Day by day, the clock is tick­ing. So much to do, it seems, and so little time to do it. In just more than three weeks, fam­il­ies around the North­east will be cel­eb­rat­ing with loved ones, pre­oc­cu­pied by the joy and good­will of the sea­son.

But this hol­i­day sea­son won’t be so up­lift­ing for all people, for all fam­il­ies. There are many right here in the North­east— per­haps even a neigh­bor or friend, but most whom we’ll nev­er know — who en­dure the sea­son with dis­en­chant­ment, an empty feel­ing brought on by the isol­a­tion or hard­ships of lives that don’t seem too blessed right now.

However, thanks to your mon­et­ary dona­tions, your kind­ness and com­pas­sion are help­ing our 56th an­nu­al Elean­or Smylie Com­munity Fund provide nour­ish­ing meals or presents to people try­ing to give their fam­il­ies a hap­pi­er hol­i­day.
