I’m calling in to talk about the Zion Shelter. We need to do everything we can here in Washington and Beaufort County to keep the Zion Shelter open. It feeds and gives shelter to really needy people that have no other place to go. The shelter uses all the money that it can to go directly to these people to keep them warm and give them a place to eat. We should all get together this Friday and take every donation we can to keep the shelter open. Think about it. Christmas is coming. What better gift could we give than to help the Zion Shelter to stay open? Please, help the Zion Shelter stay open and take them everything you can. Every dollar will help.

Nice story in the Tuesday paper about the robbery on River Road. You even gave a description of the suspect. This is good reporting. Please, keep up the good work on reporting robberies in the area.
