The Ripple of Giving at Water's Edge
MIDDLETOWN - A special thanks goes out to the Resident
Council of the Water's Edge Center for Health and Rehabilitation in Middletown,
Connecticut. James McDew (President), James Robinson (Vice President), and
Nathaniel Simmons (Treasurer) are all elected members of the Resident Council
and are the voice of all of the residents there. The Resident Council is a
group of individuals that meet together to discuss issues and take any concerns
to the Director.
(Taken during this year's Summer
At one of their council meetings, a donation was collected, and they wanted
it presented to a charitable organization. A vote was conducted and it was
agreed upon that The Salvation Army in Middletown receive this donation for a
multitude of reasons. One of those being that the residents loved the visit and
performances that they received from the children in this Salvation
Army’s Summer Program. The President of the Resident Council had also
done some volunteer work at The Salvation Army, and he was familiar with the
needs of this organization, as well as what it does to help those in need.
And so, as a result of The Salvation Army giving to the community, the
community in turn gave to it. Thank you once again to the Water's Edge Center
and to Darlene Behr, Activities Director there.
