LETTERS TO THE EDITOR — December 30, 2010

Reader appalled by behavior

Dear Editor,

I am appalled to think of how high the illiteracy rate must be in the Rockford area. How else to account for the amount of “donations” sitting in the rain and snow in front of the Community Center (this past weekend, December 11-12) despite the sign at the Center entrance that clearly stated, “New Items Only,” and the second line stated, “No donations until December 20.”

When weather damages these goods (which happened this past weekend, as goods were covered in snow and rained upon) the Community Center must pay for disposal with funds which could help those in need.

The Center has regular hours for donations of items which could be used—it is not a “way station” for items which should be disposed of.
