Community’s generosity on full display
We are living through difficult – and unprecedented – times.
Aside from those who lived through the Great Depression, no living souls know what truly hard, desperate times are like.
A shining light, though, on full display in Greater Nashua and the Souhegan Valley is the generosity of the many members of our collective communities.
That is on full display in today’s edition of The Telegraph, where we tell the story of the massive amount of donations made during the city’s three-day supply drive earlier this week.
The Department of Public Works took in 112 packages of gloves, 80 packages of baby wipes, 84 rolls of paper towels, 180 rolls of toilet paper, 45 packages of disinfectant wipes and much, much more. Those donations were dropped off at the United Way of Greater Nashua on Friday for distribution to those in need, including nonprofits and others who are serving the community.
In addition, on today’s front page, Anagnost Investments Inc. is highlighted for dropping off 100 gallons of much-needed hand sanitizer to the Nashua Police Department.
It doesn’t stop there. We also showcase the Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter and Gurney’s Automotive Repair in today’s edition for the amazing work they are doing.
Still, there’s more. We could literally fill multiple editions of our newspapers with the good deeds of others battling through this crisis, helping to brighten the day for our fellow citizens in what can feel like dark, lonely times.
Many pitching in during this outbreak often do so in happier times, too, but go unnoticed – many even wanting to keep their good deeds anonymous.
To those helping – and those who may not be able to financially, but do so with their time and talent – we sincerely thank you for all you are doing.
Please know that your kind deeds do not go unnoticed and that you truly are making a difference in the lives of each and every member of our community.
