The Morning Call Feeds the Cynicism that is Tearing Our Communities Apart
So the newspaper makes it sound like those of us who stepped forward to do what can be done are taking our good old time.
To those who gave or want to give (by the way, Morning Call decision-makers in Baltimore or Chicago or wherever you are, I haven’t seen nor heard anything about a contribution from you): we have two challenges. First, we need to know the families’ needs so we can compare them to each other in order to be be fair in the distribution of funds. And, second, we need to have some sense of how much money will be available.
Think about it. What if we are moved by the needs of the first five families with which we come into contact? We give them as much as they “need.” Forty-four families to go. Sorry, folks, we gave it all away.
To the kind neighbors, near and far, who want to help: every nickel of your contribution will go directly to the families; it will be done carefully to ensure that it’s distributed fairly; and it will be done with haste, but not, to the best of our ability, with waste.
And to the families: we are trying to reach each of you. If you would contact us at 610-691-2127 we will move this as quickly as possible.
