How Do You Help at Home?
With the tragedy befalling Japan, many want to find out how to give aid. But, what can you do to help out those around here?
On March 11, Japan experienced a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami, creating a disaster officials there say is the worst that country has experienced since World War II. Since then, nations, organizations and individuals have mobilized to help in any way they can, with funding, aid and other resources.
While the efforts are welcome and needed, there always is a need to help out closer to home–here in Morristown and beyond. Our "You Said It" question of the week is asking folks: How do you help at home? Check back each afternoon as people give their suggestions, and feel free to leave your own suggestions in the comments.
