Letter: Donation appreciated
To the editor:
Thank you so much for the donation of $205 to Vaughn-Trent Community Services through the paper’s subscription campaign. This support allows us to assist many in our community who are in need.
We take pride in not having to turn away anyone in need who meets the guidelines or who is experiencing some extraordinary circumstance in their life. Since none of our funding is from government sources or grants, we are thankful for the generosity of organizations, churches and individual donors.
Our assistance includes help with utility bills, providing food, vouchers for our thrift store and temporary lodging. We also work with the schools to provide dental care, medications and other needs as requested by school nurses or counselors.
Please express our sincere thanks to those in The World Company who are responsible for such a unique way of supporting our work.
Vaughn-Trent Community Services director
