Many of our neighbors, particularly those who were forced to start over during the recession, are struggling to make ends meet. As many of us know, all it takes is an unforeseen circumstance to turn our fortunes into dust. We are all vulnerable. But when we have each other’s backs, we build a safety net and make each other stronger. That’s why it’s important to give to ShareNet’s Neighbor Aid campaign. No matter the size of the donation, you’ll make a big difference in someone’s life — possibly someone you know.
