Besides being a consumer and paying taxes, have you gone above and beyond to help your community during this crisis?
I donated a CLEP study guide to our local library and some classic children's books that wound up in the permanent collection. The VFW was having a hard time raising enough money to send a few kids to college and I'm hoping that the CLEP study guide has helped fill the gap somewhat.
I made a decision after Roy passed away that I no longer wanted to drive and traded the car to the cab co for rides and payments. The owner of the cab co is a single mom working 3 jobs. They know the area really well and fill me in on whatever I need to know. Plus I don't have repair bills, insurance payments , snow plowing fees, worry over gas prices and I know that the community which only has one cab co and not enough jobs has a reliable vehicle. Hey , you never know making sure that the community has a decent cab service might have saved a few lives to boot.
My Dad always said; "Pitch in and help out."
Funny how a mentality can stick in your head.
I still buy groceries and Rx's.
