Donate to help victims of Sept. 11 attacks

As published in the Bellingham Herald on 27 September, 2001

The citizens of our community are blessed in many ways. We have beautiful mountains to view and Puget Sound is at our doorstep. Most of all, our shire is relatively protected from the terrorists that stalk the rest of the world.

God has blessed my table and it is overflowing with his bountiful gifts. All the chairs at my table are full. They are filled with two children, two grandchildren and the recent arrival of a goddaughter.

God has not blessed all of our people equally. Many people in our community have empty tables. In New York and Washington, D.C., there are not only bare tables but empty chairs as well.

I donated to the American Red Cross through my credit union several days ago.

Today I donated to the United Way. Half of my donation went to the United Way to help the people of our community. The other half was given to the September 11 Fund.

The United Way is forwarding this money directly to the agencies that are assisting the victims of the terrorist attacks. They are not charging any administration fee.

As our nation struggles to recover from this day of terror please consider giving to the United Way and to the September 11th Fund.

Sheila L. Richardson
