There is a new type of bank in town and it is not your typical bank.
Unlike profit-oriented banks, this bank actually gives to people who are in need without charge and without expecting anything in return. Too good to be true, it might sound, but that is actually the case with food banks!
As a last resort, desperate people who have fallen on hard times are raising white flags in a cry for help and those in a position to assist are responding. Amidst these turbulent times, it is heartwarming to see people stepping up and taking the initiative to render aid to those who are less fortunate. It is hoped that such practical help can alleviate the hardship of the needy and that such ones would similarly extend assistance to others down the road whenever they are in a position to do so.
