Several years ago a relative with whom I’d had no contact in years called and asked me to send money because they had no food. I happened to know about this couple…….both made decent salaries, had a new house, 2 nice cars, always trying to keep up with the Joneses. It was a short conversation – I told them to go to a food pantry in their city.
