Page 8 THE VILLADOM TIMES IV • February 11, 2009 Our hat’s off to the Wyckoff family YMCA, Franklin Lakes Physical Therapy, and Warren Point Presbyterian Church, for their recent contributions to our families. Prosperity lives in the act of generosity; it does not live in fear. With many being touched by the economy, there is a fear that we have not seen the worst yet. All Emmanuel asks ? Ca n Yo u Help the talk of hard times spreads fear. As that goes, people spend less money, banks are not lending, and more contraction occurs. What is a person to do? Each of us can have an influence and impact on the organizations, businesses, and people around us by giving of ourselves. By helping others, we do empower those in a less fortunate set of circumstances. By contributing money, we keep the monetary circulation going, and that keeps everything in play in our world at large. I’m not asking people to give something they don’t have, but I am saying we should expand the good will. This is the very last chance to involve your group in this Valentine’s Day season. Consider a fundraiser or a food collection in the spirit of Valentine’s Day. You can donate any foods that are pink or red or have that color label on them. We have a big need for nutrient drinks, like Pedia-Sure and Ensure, that our kids use because they have some difficulty with the effects of chemotherapy. We have new families that have signed on for our services and requests for food from our families have doubled since May of last year. Some of their needs are: Pathmark, Shop-Rite, and A&P grocery store gift cards. Your contribution helps the family’s tight budget stretch a little more. Please keep donating those Pull-ups (size 4T-5T) and GoodNites brand diapers (for a person of 38 pounds) for four-yearold girl named Allie who is suffering from a aftereffects of Wilms tumor and surgeries that have left her with no ability to control her urination function normally.
