Yesterday morning the new Industrial Bank teamed up with DaVita and the American Kidney Fund to pass out over 200 turkeys to people who stood in line to get one.
I don't know why, but my first instinct was to feel kinda bitter about yet another charitable "we're so great because we're doing something in Anacostia" event. But people need turkeys, and someone was nice enough to give them away. This is a Good thing. Simple as that.
Sometimes it's easy to brush away the reality that despite all the positive changes around here and the big plans for everything that there's still a significant low-income population over here. Here's to a better attitude.
