Time to step forward

The media has highlighted local shelters being in low supply of cots and blankets.

Now that our community has this awareness, I can't help but wonder why big businesses have not stepped forward to fill the need.

Large companies such as WalMart, Target, Sears, Big Five, K-Mart and Herb Bauer could donate necessities such as cots, blankets, pillows and even sleeping bags. Coats, hats and gloves would be a good donation as well.

I want to know what is holding them back. I'm sure a donation is a tax-wise "gesture."
