I live in one of the poorest counties in the nation. We distribute food for Thanksgiving and Christmas and choose families for gifts. We could hardly find anyone who needed the food for Thanksgiving and we had food running out our ears. I made the snarky comment, “So much food and so few hungry”.
There are so many freebies out there that the “poor” don’t need a thing.
The real poor children are those in drug and alcohol addicted families whose parents spend anything they can get on drugs.
