In Our Opinion: Embrace the season of giving


The class collected 50 toys and $50 in donations.

“I’m extremely proud that our students were able to give back in a time of need like this,” Sidney Superintendent Bill Christensen said in the release. “Though this was a terrible situation, we hope our students were able to help as much as they could during this holiday season.”

And that is the true spirit of the season. It is about giving, not receiving. 

And it’s not too late. Make donations wherever you see they are needed. Volunteer your time to work at a community dinner, or be a bell-ringer for the Salvation Army. Offer to bring an elderly neighbor to a Christmas Eve service.

We can all work to make the holiday season a happy one for others.
