Help others for benefit of all

Let me clarify my position (“Use funds to focus on people,” Reader Input, Jan. 5). I believe in helping others for the benefit of society. I’ve helped family, friends and strangers for years. I donate to charity on a weekly basis and feed the homeless when given the opportunity. I also donate free clothes to those on the streets without the means to buy them for themselves. I am a working guy who lives a simple life, so I can help the community and society. I practice what I preach because it’s the caring thing to do. A little compassion goes a long way.
