Donor: Adrianne (supporter for 5 years)

Helping out at West Hill Harvest is something we do every year. It has become as much a family tradition as having dinner together and opening our presents. At a time when so much money is spent in the name of generosity, it is difficult to receive so much and not think about those who need that which matters most. It is an opportunity to remind ourselves that is is not in the receiving, but in the giving that we find joy. And to be part of something within the community, reminds us that we are a community. One that shares in the good times as well as in the not so good times.

There are many causes asking for donations, and we give. However it is more important than just the monetary donation that we give, it is our time and our involvement. When we give our money, we make it possible for others to share in the joy of the season with their families. When we give our time, we must think about what goes into each baskets, we have an outline of the family who will be receiving it. They begin to become real to us as if they are our friends. When we help out with the deliveries we get to meet these families and share in their joy and in their pain. We shake hands, share hugs and stories and realize that we are all the same and we are all in this together. The line between where we stand is a fine one, and we must help in any way that we can.
