December 16, 2004
The best thing about the holidays is that it puts most of us in a giving mood. The kettles are rattling for the Salvation Army and food is making its way into those red barrels in the grocery stores.

It's a good time to talk about giving that does good, not just during the holidays but all year round. A red flag went up in Grimes last week on just that topic.
