The good and the bad

Dear Editor:

To those who so graciously filled our outdoor dumpster at the East Liverpool Salvation Army with their numerous old mattresses and other garbage, we give you a sarcastic thanks.

Please know that each time we have a load picked up, it costs us the same as it would cost you to dump your garbage. What happens is that takes away funding that could otherwise be used to meet the needs of the community.

And to this wonderful East Liverpool community, we have to issue a thanks. They supported us after our huge water pipe broke, flooding three floors in our building. We have been able to stay open and meet the needs of the community because of wonderful people who volunteer their time.

Major Stella Mcguire

East Liverpool
