But the need is great, and another great opportunity to help fellow Albert Leans is a benefit Tuesday. Organizers hope to raise as much money as possible for relief efforts, and they’ve already been helped by donations of hot dogs, buns, soda and raffle items from local businesses.
Albert Lea has shown its support through benefits in the past; when a resident falls ill or a family loses a house to fire, a benefit seems a sure-fire way to help. Now, hundreds of our residents need help, and in terms of magnitude, this is going to be the benefit to beat all benefits.
Anybody who wants to do their part to lend a hand should plan on attending. It’s an easy way to make a difference and show support for families subjected to undue hardship.
The businesses and individuals who have helped make the benefit possible deserve a pat on the back. Now, it’s up to everyone to make the benefit a success.
