Charity begins at home with a local cause

Letters to the Editor


Charity begins at home! What is charity? One dictionary describes charity as: 1. Christian love for God and men. 2. An act of feeling of generosity or benevolence. 3. The giving of aid to the poor and suffering!

To me, my home is where I live in the city county, state and country, the place of my home!

Locally we have a 2-year-old girl in Elmer City who could use local area charity support.

Victoria Detwiler was born with brain damage and eyesight problems, and this becomes a large expense to the family for Victoria’s upkeep and medical attention that Victoria needs.

Let’s all in the Grand Coulee Dam area show Victoria our support by donating a little or a lot to the fund-raiser for little Victoria.

I would like to say thanks a bunch to everyone who may donate to Victoria, as I’m sure Victoria would say the same thing if she was able to talk.

To me, charity begins at home, and if we cut back on foreign aid we could take better care of our own citizens.
