Dear Editor: It’s my understanding that everyone including seniors will receive $1,200 from our government due to the coronavirus.  

At first, my thoughts were — what will I use it for — bills or toys?

Then I realized how lucky I am to be financially secure. Therefore, as nice as it would be for me to keep the funds it’s more important to help those in need — take care of friends, family, and neighbors in need to the store to pay for their groceries.  

Donate to nonprofits and small businesses here in our local area.

If you are able to, please consider this suggestion. Also, pass this on so others across our great country may do the same.

Yes, we can make a difference!
