Guest Editorial: Thank you!

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - I’m amazed by the compassion and generosity of our friends in the River Region. This has never been more evident than by the outpouring of love demonstrated at the recent WSFA 12’s Day of Giving.

You not only heard about your friends’ struggles with hunger and felt compassion, but you went a step further. You did something about it! By your action, tens of thousands of dollars and thousands of pounds of food will go to feed the hungry.

We would like to thank the teams of WSFA 12 News and Dixie Electric Coop, along with all our sponsors for their incredible work to bring this together. It was their collective gift to those in need in the River Region and beyond.

It’s interesting that the phrase “thank you” is rooted in the ancient Indo-European phrase that is translated “think” or "feel”. This tells me that a “thank you” comes from both the head and the heart.

I’m Rich Deem, CEO of the Montgomery Area Food Bank and on behalf of our staff and board of directors, thank you for making a difference. Your acts of kindness have brought a ray of hope into someone’s darkness!

Richard Deem

CEO - Montgomery Area Food Bank
