Community works together to help those in need

To the Editor:

On behalf of the Ahoskie Christian Center, I would like to thank the Roanoke-Chowan community for their donations of winter coats for needy families during our 22nd annual Winter Coat Drive. Two hundred fifty (250) coats were donated by local citizens and churches during the month of November and most of them were distributed on December 12th

It is through the combined efforts of community agencies, churches, and private citizens that worthwhile projects such as this are successful. Special thanks go to the following post offices that served as collection sites:

Aulander Post Office

Cofield Post Office

Colerain Post Office

Como Post Office

Harrellsville Post Office

Murfreesboro Post Office

Powellsville Post Office

Winton Post Office
