Letter: Donation suggestions needed

To the editor,

I would like to see some information in the paper (and online news) about places that need donations for a very good cause. I don't mean those that our money goes to upper management. In my opinion there are many other needy people right here in Hastings. Maybe an animal shelter if there is one in Hastings. Addresses would help so that we can go to these places. I have told my children and grandchildren no gifting this year. We need to help others that are having a rough time making ends meet now.

We can use suggestions from anyone that has any information. I am sure there are others that would like to participate also, and don't know where to start checking on it. Thank you for any help you can give us.

Mary Bystrom
