We the people appreciate these contributions but as St. Vincent de Paul says, use donations wisely. The poor need more than just food. They need to be uplifted from poverty. Putting a band aid on poverty is not a solution. It can be considered a loss. They need real leaders to advocate for them. The county needs affordable housing and it is unacceptable for any child in this country to be raised homeless, without water and basic necessities. If their families qualify for subsidies it should be available. We all need to be a voice to the leaders in this community to go out into the poor neighborhoods and make them a priority. Salmon is high is Coq10 and can provide many nutrients but nothing replaces the value of running water and a roof over their heads. Come on people of Fauquier County. Be their voice. Make American children and their families first. Stop abusing our resources and start uplifting people out of poverty. Giving them bread is helpful but not a solution. Let's step this up.
