The Slice

Leaf it to Brandon

A reader named Cathy noticed that The Slice has been addressing the subject of leaf-raking.

She had a story.

There is a little boy named Brandon who is an important person to Cathy and her husband.

They have tried to help him develop sound values. So if, say, they were getting Brandon a toy, they might suggest that they also buy something for an underprivileged child. You know, that sort of thing.

Well, a couple of years ago, when Brandon was 5, Cathy's husband spent the day with the boy gathering up and playing in leaves. At the end of the day, they filled a yard-waste barrel with leaves.

Brandon had a question.

“Will they be taking these to the poor kids who don't have leaves?”
