Community's generosity key in sending taste of home to troops overseas

Letter to the editor

October 21, 2011

I want to thank the Arbutus Times and Catonsville Times and the communities they serve for the items that folks continue to drop off here at the station.

Because of the constant and gracious donations, a total of 202 boxes were mailed overseas in the last two weeks. This is the largest amount of material sent overseas to this date.

To put it in perspective, the last shipment was 167 boxes.

We can never thank you and your readers enough.

We hope the items continue to come in. If not for this area, the program would not endure in such a successful way.

We count upon ongoing support. I look forward to meeting the folks who drop items off here at Station 5.

Ed Sipes, captain

Station 5, Baltimore County Fire Department
