Things to remember during the Holiday season:

  1. Never use your credit card online on a website that doesn't have an SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption. You'll know a site has this encryption and is safe if the URL starts with https:// (look for the "s"). You will often also see a padlock, typically on the left side of your web address bar.
  2. No one needs your social security number or birth date for a transaction. Keep that information private!
  3. Start at a trusted site rather than using a search engine to ensure you are on the website of a legitimate business.
  4. Check your online bank statements regularly - don't wait until the end of the month. If you see something suspicious, contact your bank immediately.
  5. Never give anyone your credit card information via email and ensure your computer is up-to-date with current firewalls, updates and anti-virus/anti-malware software.
  6. Trust your instincts. If something seems too good to be true.. it probably is!
  7. When shopping, place all of your valuables out of sight.
  8. When making purchases and bringing them home, always be aware that thieves may be cruising your neighborhood looking at the trash looking for what has been bought.
  9. Have a neighbor watch your house while you or gone out for the day, or evening.
  10. Have a neighbor watch your house if you go out of town.
  11. Make sure you are aware of your surroundings and who is around you.
  12. If you have too much to drink....CALL A RIDE!!!!!

More Information:
Judge McClain is very active with Faith in Action and he stated they are currently feeding 140 families and during the holidays they expect that number to go up to at least 200 families. He has said that in all his years as a prosecutor he had never prosecuted anyone for stealing food, and that these people have to really work to get this food. He is familiar with a great many of these people who ask for food and most of them were, at one time, hardworking employed people, and one or both heads of the household had lost their jobs.

Some of these people are elderly people who might go hungry the last week of the month until their Social Security checks come in if it were not for the food bank. There are children in this county that ask other children for the food they do not eat and they check the trash for salvageable food items to take home each night. This food is either for them or siblings. Please think of the people, the good people who could be you or me in the same position.
