Editorial: 12's Day of Giving

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

There are many people in need here in Alabama throughout the year, but as Thanksgiving leads to Christmas time, their need seems more pronounced, especially in an unstable economy.

For over 10 years now WSFA 12 News has held a one day event in early December to help people in need  in our area… 12's Day of Giving.

We chose to collect donations for three charities that we feel best reflect the need at this time of year: The Christmas Clearinghouse, The  Montgomery Area Food Bank and Toys for Tots.

We try to make it a fun event that our viewers  can participate in and feel good  about.  Our anchors and reporters take up donations of food, toys and money.  We broadcast live in our newscasts.  We give away gifts for donations. 

Many organizations will ask you to give this holiday season, and… please…  give where your heart  leads you.     If you want to be a part of 12's Day of Giving, come to the parking lot of Walmart on Chantilly Parkway on Friday and donate.

I promise you won't be sorry, and neither will the people you help.

    The subject of legalizing marijuana is more openly discussed these days, but I sense I will be long gone before our state ever passes such legislation.

    I can’t begin to thank all the people in Montgomery who went out of their way to make an outsider feel at home. In only a year and a half we have made lifelong friends, friends who we would count on with our lives and our children’s lives. But it is the South, and that is what you do.
