Should you give a homeless person cash? Is a fabulous Christmas present the best way to help a child in foster care and the families who help them? What’s Giving Tuesday all about?
We answer, or at least debate, those questions and more in a podcast that we hope doesn’t come across as too judgmental.
Hear about the first-hand experiences of Shannon Casas, editor in chief and foster parent, and Joshua Silavent, education reporter who has worked as an advocate for the homeless in Hall County. They have some advice about how to best help people not only during the Christmas season but all year long.
While we're sure we didn't mention all the local groups doing good work, here are some we did mention:
- Promise 686
- Family Promise of Hall County
- Under the Bridge Ministry
- Good News at Noon
- My Sister’s Place
