Cincinnati Reds Player Sean Casey
gives support to Labels Are For Jars Project
, a non-profit organization based in Lawrence, Massachusetts dedicated to making certain people don't go hungry | Playing on the all too often too real fact that society pre-judges the less fortunate amongst us, with labels intended to be perjorative | This can be as much a way to distancing oneself from poverty as it does from debasing and devaluing others who are poor, so as to keep and then maintain that social distance |
Anyway, the group, based in Lawrence, MA, itself a town with very high poverty rates, was started by Father Paul O'Brien, to address the unmet needs of the largely working poor who do not have enough to eat or feed their families |
Sean Casey, once living in the area, and formerly sharing an apartment with Fr. O'Brien, lent his encouragement and support of this noble and valuable cause | You can help, too...
