Letter: Thanks to everyone who helps

As the home-school coordinator for the Bennington-Rutland Supervisory Union (BRSU) I am often tasked with finding resources and solutions for a variety of issues and needs for children and their families throughout the counties of Rutland, Bennington, Windham, and Windsor. It is so astonishing to me that I am able to reach out to a plethora of local businesses that are willing and able to lend a product or service to a family in need. Recently Brent Godnick and his team at Godnick's Grand Furniture kindly donated a bed to a family. Mr. Godnick replied just before I received a reply from Michael Fiacco of Bennington Furniture who also was more than willing to help.

Two constants for me are the Stratton Foundation of Stratton and Tatum's Totes of Rutland. While these two non-profit organizations have different goals, their outcomes are the same. They help children and families in need, and along with the Brent Godnick's of our communities give without hesitation to help people like me. I am very grateful to work with these children and their families, but I am equally appreciative to work with the unsung heroes of our communities. So when you watch the news and hear about all of the things that are wrong taking place in our communities and state, know that there is a tremendous amount of good that happens on a daily basis. Thank you to everyone that lends a helping hand, not just to the BRSU, but to those who need it in general.
