Margaret Culverwell: Big act of kindness

To the editor:

They haven’t been open long, and yet they’re already making a contribution to our community.

Dollar Tree manager Abel Salazar wanted to help out citizens of Craig in one way or another. On thought he had was to collect donated school supplies before next year’s school hearing. After hearing about the upcoming Holiday Drive, he decided the Christmas for Seniors and Christmas for Kids programs would be one of the recipients of this fall’s project.

The Dollar Tree is not asking or accepting monetary donations. They have made donating very easy for their patrons. Shoppers are asked if they’d like to donate to the Christmas for Kids/Christmas for Seniors programs when they check out. There are two baskets by the cash register.

Thanks to the associates, each basket is filled with either a gift for a child or a gift for a senior. If someone opts to donate $1, the associate will remove a gift from the appropriate basket and place it in the collection boxes.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

All items collected will be donated to their respective programs during the KRAI Holiday Drive on Dec. 8 and 9 at Centennial Mall.

For only being open a few weeks, the Dollar Tree is making a positive impact on our community.

As director of the Christmas for Seniors program, I’d like to publicly thank the associates and Abel at the Dollar Tree.
