The true meaning of the Holidays and beyond

This year as many go about getting ready for the holiday's, I know that doing for others is truly what it is all about.  dcs Accounting & Tax was a drop off point where people could donate items to gather and give to those who are somewhat over looked this time of year.  We collected items from so many wonderful small businesses and individuals for the senior population and the terminally ill.

My youngest son and I put bags together to give out with the items we received from our collection and he also came to deliver the items to Saucon Valley Manor, St. Vincent DePaul Society, St. Lukes Hospice, Saucon Valley Community Center and Safe Harbor. He is getting ready to get confirmed this year so he had to sum up his volunteering with the corporal works of Mercy "Feed the poor" we packed up special snacks for seniors "Clothe the Naked "  we gave warm blankets to those that were cold and needed comfort and "visit the sick" we visited the local assisted living home to give out items and to say hello.  It really does not have to be a great big project but yet so many can be touched.

We would like to take the time to thank the following Individuals and Businesses for their generosity in bringing joy to over 100 people this season.  

Tammy Huk of Coldwell Banker
Lynn Hufton of Coldwell Banker
Charles & Linda Smith
Jane Croissette Stichin Witch Embroidery, LLC
Denise Cassidy-Dietsch of Doodie Calls, LLC
Various Patrons of the Hellertown Area

In closing here is a quote from someone who inspires much of the kindness of giving and has recently been canonized as a Saint.  "We ourselves feel what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the Ocean would be less because of that missing drop" Mother Teresa

Wishing all very Merry Christmas and Happy 2016!
