Do something for Aiken seniors in need



I am writing in response to the negative comments made by people concerning the Still Magnolias calendar. What I'd like to know is how many of these critics have seen the need to contribute to the Aiken Area Council on Aging? How much have they contributed?

As a former volunteer with the Meals on Wheels program, I have seen firsthand the needs of many of our senior citizens. There are many who have outlived their families. Who out there is willing to help them?

I applaud the Still Magnolias for their efforts and their realization that something needs to be done to help our senior citizens. After all, how many of these people who are shocked, appalled or whatever by this calendar have taken it upon themselves to check with the Aiken Area Council on Aging and "adopt" one of these needy individuals?
