Letter: Support your local food bank

To the Editor:

This Thanksgiving season, Marcelle and I are finding it especially important to count our blessings and give thanks.

We are thankful for the health of our family and friends and are sending our thoughts to those who are struggling.

We are thankful for the friendships we have in Vermont, across the nation, and across the world.

We are thankful to live in the greatest nation on earth, and we are profoundly grateful for those willing to fight to keep our democracy strong and vibrant.

We are thankful for small acts of kindness and wish for all us to do more of them.

With that in mind, Marcelle and I hope you will join us in making a donation to your local food pantry to help those who need our compassion this season. To find your local community food bank, visit www.feedingamerica.org/find-your-local-foodbank/.

From our family to yours, I hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving.

Patrick Leahy

U.S. Senator
