The holiday season is a time for hope, isn't it? Hope for the future. Hope for your community. Hope for the planet. For children, it might be hope for a special toy. For adults, it might be hope that the family will be together at the holidays just one more time. For those struggling, it might be hope for one more day or even hope for a roof over your head and a hot meal.
