To the Editor:

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reflect on our blessings. Hilliard is blessed with giving and caring businesses and people who live and work in our community. I am reminded of this every week with all the fundraisers supporting great causes and families.

Last week I had the pleasure of attending Heritage Helping Hilliard. Businesses donated auction and raffle items. People purchased tickets to the event and bid on auction items.

The event raised $9,100 for the Hilliard food pantry for refrigerators and freezers for their new building so they can assist more families. This would not have been possible without the hard work of the organizer Nikki Kimber and Don Byerly and the staff at Heritage Golf Club.

As we gather around the Thanksgiving table with friends and family, we can remember that we are blessed to be part of the Hilliard community.
