Dear Salvation Army Staffers,
In the middle of filling out a HeatShare contribution form
Several weeks ago, I celebrated a one-year anniversary of sorts. A year ago, I was very ill with (undiagnosed) bronchio/pneumonia, had no money, and was within hours of gas and electric shutoffs. As a self-employed sales person, I'd been ineligible for normal assistance despite having gone through an eight month period without income.
HeatShare was the first organization to stand up and offer their help. They were followed closely by the Sumsail Foundation and by HUD.
One year later, I’m once again a contributing member of society and am able to begin paying back those who helped when such help meant
So, as I send the first small contribution back, I’d like to take this opportunity to also say THANK YOU! Would you please also pass on my gratitude to those in your office?
