To the Editor:

There are times in our lives that we often wonder just how things will "work out." Each year GOOD KARMA thrives to help the many deserving members of our community and offer as much as they can to those in surrounding areas as well. Volunteers discuss plans each year hoping that they can do more than the year before. This year is no different; we had hoped to receive an abundant amount of donations for our Thanksgiving food boxes however the needs of our community far out weighed our ability to provide.

When the needs of our community were conveyed, one of our very faithful supporters and friends offered to lend a hand. Dean Traux of King William Auction House mentioned that he was having a food auction on Nov. 17 and welcomed GOOD KARMA to come. Volunteers showed up and Dean opted to share with his patrons some of the many things GOOD KARMA does for the members of our community. Once the auction began, it was absolutely amazing how generous so many of the King William Auction House patrons were. We left the auction with two truckloads full of donated items and hopes of filling all of the Thanksgiving food boxes. Our hearts go out to Dean, his wife and the many members of his staff. Not only have all of you done great things for GOOD KARMA but also the many deserving members of our community.

It's been proven over and over again. If we all work together we can do so much more. GOOD KARMA's motto states, "What Goes Around, Comes Around." You never know when you may need something from someone else so always do what you can, when you can.

Thanks to everyone in the King William Community for continuing to support the efforts of GOOD KARMA as well as the many other organizations that do what they can to serve.

Lisa Woody, Good Karma
