But I ask you again, what will be your purpose in 2014? Will you find something to which you can give your time, your talents, yourself? There are many nonprofit groups in our communities that need our help and resources. For example, the four organizations - Carroll County Food Sunday, Carroll Hospice, Neighbors in Need and The Shepherd's Staff - that received money through the very successful Carroll County Times Holiday Hope campaign are examples of places where we can be useful, beneficent caregivers. If we just look outside ourselves we can find many other worthy causes to support, whether they serve young people, needy people, the elderly, the sick, or the dying.
