Letters: Light up a needy family's holiday

THANK YOU for your column suggesting that donations to charity are way more in line with the true spirit of the holidays.

THANK YOU for your column suggesting that donations to charity are way more in line with the true spirit of the holidays.

I direct the Utility Emergency Services Fund, which provides assistance to low-income families to get utility service or keep theirs on.

We see firsthand that a gift that results in a family's waking up on Christmas (or Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Ramadan) morning to a warm house is much more meaningful than a gift of a tired tie to one's father-in-law. Thanks for helping to get our priorities right.
