Thanks to woman who paid for asthma supplies
To the editor:
It was a typical trip to Wal-Mart in Shippensburg, Pa., to pick up the supplies for the asthma kits that needed to go out to children. I was rushed and had a big order and was on my second trip through the checkout line.
There was a mother with a young boy in her cart behind me and she was wondering why I needed all of the supplies. I explained that I am working with the Cumberland Valley Asthma Alliance, which recently had expanded its school program into the homes of children with asthma thanks to a grant from Summit Endowment. We can now go to their homes and give parents the tools they need to reduce the number of indoor triggers to keep their children's asthma under control.
She continued to ask questions and I was very proud to answer every one. My order was just about to be completed and she said to the cashier, "I will be buying this order."
