Letter to the Editor
A long time ago, a local church started a program to help needy people clothe and feed themselves. The good minister and his wife never turned anyone away and asked no questions, as to the reason for the need. Both of these God fearing people have gone on to their reward and the people of this city were assured that their work and vision would continue.
My sister and her husband are both unable to work, because of medical conditions. My sister went to this church for some assistance with food, for her family. She was asked about her monetary situation and as to why she doesn't work. Although this should never have been asked, my sister explained her situation to this woman. This woman that "helps" with this program, informed my sister, that if she would lose weight, she could probably work. She then, informed my sister that she could only come for one more month for help.
Now, I understand that local merchants only donate just so much, but this woman had no right to tell my sister what she did. She is not a physician and should not use this wonderful program to force her personal opinion on people that just need a little help. The good reverend and his wife would turn in their grave if they knew how their vision is now being clouded. Thank you.
