Giving Thanks and Giving to Others
This Thanksgiving, families and individuals in areas hit hard by the loss of American manufacturing will be suffer more than ever before. The recession may be over, but the effects of massive cuts in manufacturing jobs have left many jobless and some struggling to pay the bills and put food on the table.
So this year, while giving thanks for all of your blessings, consider giving to those who have been the most affected by the poor economy and high unemployment.
Donating canned food and turkeys to local churches and food drives and giving to clothing drives can help families, like the ones struggling in Marietta, Ohio, to have a brighter holiday. Giving can even be as simple as adding an extra dollar to your electric bill to keep another family's home lit and warm for the holiday season.
AAM would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
