Letter: Caring and kindness emerge in Shelton fire aftermath
To the Editor:
Shelton unfortunately had been dealt the unthinkable — a fire. A fire that destroys our history and several businesses, causing residents to lose their property and homes.
But when a disaster happens, we see caring and kindness emerge in the aftermath.
I reached out to Vision Center at 880 Bridgeport Ave., hopeful that a young resident would be able to replace a pair of eyeglasses.
The original pair were lost when she and her mother had to flee the early morning fire.
Without any hesitation, the answer from Vision Center was “yes.” I am grateful to Lisa, optometrist Christian Swenby and staff.
Later that day, I contacted Walmart in Shelton and now want to thank Peggy, Marissa and their employees for helping the community.
Every day, continuing kindness is still occurring from so many of you — volunteering and making donations.
Finally, to every firefighter, a job well done.
