Letter: Community's kindness helps the homeless

The Eagle-Tribune

---- — To the editor:

The generosity of the Salem community doesn’t stop. The most recent donation that Saints Mary and Joseph Community Service and the Family Promise of Greater Rockingham County received was from Salem Nissan. That fine business donated $1,000 to both of our organizations and we are so appreciative because it helps us act as a safety net for families and singles in this area.

With businesses cutting their workforce immediately following the Christmas holiday and with the extreme weather that we have been experiencing, it was most important that we have funds to help temporarily homeless members of our community meet their basic needs for heat, shelter and food. We also want to thank the management of Manor Motel, Park View Inn, and Red Roof Inn for going above and beyond in working to help the homeless. Thanks again to the Salem business community!
