Community kindness

Thanks to honest citizens, resident gets return of valuables.

Dear editor,

Some three weeks ago a Port Hardy RCMP detachment member knocked at our door. My husband answered and the officer asked to speak with me.

I went to the door as the officer asked if my maiden name was (withheld). I responded that, yes, that would be me. He then handed me a piece of identification, along with another item of equal importance.

My husband and I had been cleaning out a lot of things and taking them to the Port Hardy Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Store. These items had been found in one of the many boxes that we took to the thrift store, and were then turned over to our local police department and, finally, returned to myself.

I wish to publicly thank all of the staff and volunteers who work so diligently to assist our local hospital in purchasing equipment that would otherwise not be available for the public’s use. These ladies (and gents, perhaps — I don’t want to leave anyone out!) work tirelessly, they are members of our community, they are honest and they have integrity. Our local RCMP members also have these same attributes.

Thanks to both groups I now have items of personal value back in my possession. I will endeavour to be more careful as we sort through more items for the thrift store. We are proud to be members of such a caring community. Thanks again!

Sheila Charlton
