Jesus Christ's birth into poverty can be your call to contact Senators Franken and Klobuchar and Representative Cravaack now. Ask them to keep a circle of protection around the hunger/poverty assistance measures in our national budget now in negotiation. Services to women, infants and children (WIC) and supplemental food assistance to the qualified needy of any age (SNAP) are working. And they are vital to the healthy survival of needy neighbors here in Hubbard and the surrounding counties. A quick call or e-mail today will be a gift that counts.
