Program generosity shows caring, concern

DUNCAN — News of the impending success of the 2013-14 United Way of Stephens County campaign brings to mind a significant point about the place we all call home.

Duncan and Stephens County are full of generous people.

You only have to think of the massive volunteer efforts to make clear the point.

The Toy Shop; the Community Auction, originated by the Duncan Jaycees and presented this year by the Duncan Rotary; the Community Christmas luncheon; the Simmons Center Christmas Tree and Wreath auction; and the Duncan Kiwanis Christmas tree sale are but a sampling of events staged to generate monies to help others.

Thousands of dollars are donated every year to help hundreds. It is a collective sign of passionate giving that should make us all feel good.
