“Do a little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world” Desmond Tutu I saw this quote last year and immediately thought of how our Craig Bay Community comes together every fall to help The Salvation Army provide support to those in need in the Oceanside area. We may not be overwhelming the world, but we certainly overwhelmed Major Hamelin last November [...]

Few of us know what it’s like to go hungry for a sustained period, let alone to starve.
