Old friend provides gift

Sunday, July 11, 2010

To the Editor:

A gift from an old friend, the late Les Walden, Sunday last, witnessed a gift that will definitely help someone with comfort while awaiting word of a loved one in the hospital.

We received a large container with perhaps slightly more than a gallon of tabs from an old friend.

Jeff Walden sent it, saying that his father, Les Walden, now deceased, had been gathering them and had a note that the pop tabs were for the McDonald House at Indianapolis and Jeff sent them to us after discovering them while he was clearing out some of Les' things.

Jeff, we certainly will get the late Les Walden's pop tabs to the McDonald House at Indianapolis personally along with another million real soon.

Community Missionary Church has an ongoing project to not only collect tabs for the McDonald House, but also pop cans for our "Rice for Haiti Children," where everyone can help by phoning us to pick up your bags of pop cans, tabs, etc., at 448-2873 or 442-6954. Leave a message for call back or drop off at Bedwell Tire Shop on East Main Street, Brazil.

Thank you,

Sarge Marion Eveland,
