In the next few days, many of us will celebrate either Hanukkah, Thanksgiving or both with friends and family. Annual events like these give us time to reflect on our blessings and to prepare for the coming end of the year. So, on behalf of my entire staff, we wish you the very best and brightest Hanukkah and Thanksgiving, and hope that you can take some time to find a few hours to give back to neighbors and strangers who may not have as much to celebrate.
According to the Coalition Against Hunger, nearly one in four people in Philadelphia lives in poverty, which is double the national and state averages. More than one-third of all children in Philadelphia live in poverty. And, too many of our friends and neighbors have to regularly choose between paying their rent, buying medicine or putting food on the table. There are lots of good people doing good work in Philadelphia and in the surrounding communities so I hope you take some time to make someone’s life a little easier this Hanukkah and Thanksgiving.
As always, if I can ever help you, please feel free to call my district office at 215-952-3121, e-mail me at email@example.com or visit 1802 S. Broad St., Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. if you need anything. Thank you for all your support and I wish you and yours the happiest of celebrations.
All my best,
Sen. Larry Farnese
