Letter: Home weatherization help greatly appreciated

Thursday, November 22, 2012

To the Editor:

I am writing to let you know about Tri-County (Gateway) Community Action Partnership, which helps senior citizens and others with low incomes.

I am 85 years old, and never thought I would get what they did for me. Leroy Wright, the anti-poverty agency’s installation manager, called and said that a crew would come to inspect my home in a few days. They looked over my whole mobile home, inside and outside, and at 14 by 70 feet, it is a big home. I was sure glad they did.

I cannot remember everything they did when they returned, but they replaced pipes and put insulation underneath the home from end to end.

What a good job these five or six men did. They were very neat and cleaned up their mess. I do not know all their names, but Mr. Wright can be proud of them. Thank God for them and Tri-County.
