Letters to the Editor


Helping hunger
The Editor:
The Blaine Food Bank is in need of volunteers. With the coming holidays, much help will be needed. Volunteers are involved in a variety of ways here at the food bank including: packaging food into family sized portions, distribution food to food bank clients, warehouse sorting and organization, cleaning, maintenance, and special projects.
We welcome any interest you may have in helping the hundreds of hungry people who rely on our resources each month. Please contact the manager at 500 C Street in Blaine or call 332-6350. The need is great. We await your communication. Thank you for your attention to this request.
John McParlin, food bank manager
Blaine


Thanks...
The Editor:
I wish I could thank you all in person for showing all the support and caring for my girls and me at the benefit which was thrown for us. Blaine has always been a supportive community for me, but I was and still am overwhelmed by the benefit, cards, letters, and calls I received. I want to thank everyone for all the help, support, caring, and of course, the hugs everyone has given my daughters. I worry about them night and day, and miss them more than I can handle some days. It helps to know that you are all out there helping me watch over them.
Thank you so very much because they are the most important thing in the world to me. I wish I could personally thank and hug each and everyone of you. Thank you, Blaine, for being such a wonderful, caring community. I miss you all so much.
