I knew about CDAIDE through First Presbyterian Church. It was something I had never thought about before but it was something I could support.
I used to eat out frequently (before COVID) and made it a practice to tip well. I’ve occasionally given servers one of the envelopes CDAIDE provides to bless workers with an extra $20. This donation to CDAIDE was my $1,200 federal stimulus check. I didn’t need it. I knew CDAIDE would get it to where it would do the most good. It was a way to help our local people during a difficult time.
I suspect that there are others who don’t really need that check and I hope they think about how much good it could do for someone who is really struggling.
