The Christmas season has begun and folks across the Third District are giving of themselves and their time for their fellow Alabamians.
Each year around the holidays, I like to take the opportunity to highlight a few of the great works going on across our area.
The following examples are just a sampling of people giving of their time
and gifts this year.
On December 10th in Clay County, the Inter Se Club of Lineville and Modern Culture Club of Ashland will host the annual Soup Luncheon for DHR to raise money for local children in need.
In Randolph County, the Pilot Club and the Roanoke Police Department both participated in Toys for Tots.
In April, Piedmont High School seniors in Calhoun County participated in a community service day called “Seniors Helping Seniors.” They spent the day helping with yard work, household tasks and minor repairs of homes belonging to the elderly in the community.
In Tallapoosa County, members of Volunteer Connections of Central Alabama worked weekly throughout the year at the Alexander City Recycling Center, donating every dollar earned from the recyclables to local nonprofit organizations.
The physically demanding work created the need for a hydraulic lift, which two Alexander City Councilmen purchased for the recycling center as a thank you to the volunteers for their dedication to the community.
In Macon County, the Tuskegee Housing Authority and Macon County Ministerial Alliance both hosted a food bank.
In Chambers County, the Christian Service Center held a food bank and a drive for clothing and toys.
These are just a few of many generous acts happening right now across East Alabama. The spirit of giving is definitely alive in our great state.
As always, my office and staff are here to serve you.
