Regarding “Point Austin: Help the Hungry
,” [News, Nov. 29]: You have done me a great service by reminding me of the Capital Area Food Bank as I search for a charity to donate to in honor of a pal, and she and her husband do the same in her town, Charlotte, N.C. Instead of exchanging material gifts, we have decided to make donations to charities that appeal to us. Last year, we donated to the shelters where our rescue pets came from. This year, your column pointed me to the food bank and then, of course, I had to make an identical donation to the Pet Food Bank of Austin and Travis County.
Thank you for focusing attention on the great need in Central Texas so I could do my tiny part!
