I’ve shipped many a typewriter in my day and have always grimaced at the shipping cost. So when I dropped off two large, and very heavy, boxes at LBC Express containing relief supplies for the Philippines, I was quite struck that the company would be shipping those boxes for free. Several members of my church collected items for people hit hard by Typhoon Haiyan, and I had the task — the privilege — of delivering those items to LBC Express. I attempted a delivery at their East San Jose location, but donations were stacked so high, there was no more room. The next day, I drove to their Milpitas office, where I was able to complete my mission. Yet again, donations were stacked from floor to ceiling!
So, on this Thanksgiving morning, I am thankful for the giving spirit of so many.
Special thanks to LBC Express for shipping all of those packages!
