Giving is easy. Receiving is hard. A case in point: When I was a literacy volunteer 25 years ago, my client was frustrated he was not allowed to give me anything in return. The days his eyes met mine and he said, “I can read” was payment enough, with interest.
Bay Aging helped us through a rocky patch. We all need a hand sometimes, and we are grateful.
If you need help, ask. Go ahead: make my day.
