Friday, the Decatur Jr. Woman’s Club hosted their annual 3 on 3 basketball tournament, and it was an amazing success.  The event profited over $5000 that will directly impact our local community in donations to WARM, CASA, Wise Choices Pregnancy Resource Center, and Wise County Christian Counseling.

I worked the tournament, and in the midst of the fouls, free throws, and food, I kept thinking about those charities and the work they do for our community.  Personally, I’m not in a position to give massive amounts of money to charity-I give what I can, and and then give my time to make up the difference.  And, I can also attend fun events, and give small amounts of money that might add up to larger amounts.  They say “every little bit counts.”

Next week is National Volunteer Week, and there will be snippets of community service offerings everywhere.  Take just a moment and look around at our little town, and see if you can fit in a few minutes here, a few more moments there-or even sign up for an event or two.  You never know-you could have fun, support your community, and help make a difference all at the same time.
