Eastern Wake: Opinion

Editorial: Turning attention toward giving

By now you’ve no doubt finished the best part of the turkey and enjoyed the down time Thanksgiving brings.

But we have immediately embarked on the Christmas season and it is time to consider our giving. And, no, we’re not talking about gifts for grandma or tax shelters available when we need to keep some money from Uncle Sam.
