LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Good Samaritan donates roof
THE DECATUR DAILY:

I thought THE DAILY readers would be interested in a follow-up to the letter I recently wrote about a grandmother who desperately needed a new roof for her mobile home.

As you might recall, she contacted area churches, the Committee on Church Cooperation, Habitat for Humanity and many others for help, and not one offered any small bit of assistance.

The same day my letter appeared in THE DECATUR DAILY, I was contacted by an area church that had a member who came forward and offered to pay the entire cost of her new roof. Interestingly, this offer did not come from my own home church.

As of today, this grandmother has a great new roof on her mobile home, thanks to the anonymous donor.
