Our parents made a point of emphasizing to my sister and to me the importance of helping the less fortunate. We have found that one of the most effective ways doing so has been to contribute to the Capital Area Food Bank. The Capital Area Food Bank provides essential assistance to some of the most desperate members of our community, while maintaining strict control over costs. Only seven percent of its revenues goes to administration, fund-raising and overhead, a rare accomplishment in the world of philanthropy.
Please therefore consider joining me in making a contribution to The Mary M. Smalhout and Miriam S. Smalhout Memorial Fund at the Capital Area Food Bank.
