Demonstrate What You Are Thankful For!

Sometime we take for granted how fortunate we truly are.  This year in particular, many people who normally volunteer to help those less fortunate, find themselves needing the very assistance that they have provided before in the past.  Whether this is your current situation or not, here is short list provided by
Keith Carson, Alameda County Supervisor, Fifth District, to help those in need this holiday season.  Happy Thanksgiving!
