To the editor:
I would like to thank the many supportive Adirondackers who donated to the welcome bags I filled for the Samaritan House (homeless shelter) in Saranac Lake. Each bag contained toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, deodorant, hat, gloves, socks and a chocolate candy bar.
Thanks to JoAnn Latourelle, Ruth Smith, Sue Ochs, Sue Van Nortwick, Lorrie Rumble, Debbie Sweeney, Maria DeAngelo,, Beth Whalen, Beth Hall, Bill Wallace, George Miller, Steve Wilcox, Bob Zatorski, Marge Smith, Bonnie Birk, Maureen Gilmore, Joan Storey, Amy Jones and Temnit Muldowney.
Because of your generosity, I was able to provide 40 well-appreciated welcome bags to the new residents at Samaritan House this year.
