Help stop hunger and malnutrition


Dear Editor,

The people of Lake Stevens “are always there to give each other a helping hand,”  (‘Saturday will be full of holiday spirit and opportunities to give’ by Pam Stevens, Managing Editor, LSJ, Dec. 3, 2013).

This community spirit is one of the reasons the Lake Stevens area is such a popular place to live.  This time of giving can also extend globally where 3.1 million children die from malnutrition and over 57 million have no educational opportunities. 

Currently, there are bills in Congress to address these problems.  By making a phone call or sending an email to elected leaders and letting them know these tragedies are unacceptable, lives can be saved and futures restored. 

This gift of a few minutes of time can make a big difference.  

Willie Dickerson
