Dear Pastor Sam Column
Dear Pastor Sam,
My husband wants us to put a basket together for a family that doesn’t have much. Do you have any ideas?

Dear In The Giving Mood,
I would suggest you ask the Salvation Army or a local food bank. Some towns have organizations that do this and they have loads of names. In our area we have the Hope Center who help people. If you do this you need to deliver the food and gifts yourself you will find this very rewarding. When I was in Baraboo we did this and I took a group of church people to help deliver it and it had a major impact on their lives.
