HBO — To Bre Re: Latest Blog Post

Bre:

*It breaks my heart when someone asks for toilet paper and a bar of soap and I have to tell them that we’re out because we haven’t received any donations.

*It breaks my heart when a mother leans over the counter with tears in her eyes and whispers that her children have lice and she has no money for the treatment.

*Breaks my heart when an elderly gentleman waits 2 hours for a $10 gas voucher and cries when he finally receives it because he’s so thankful.

*Breaks my heart when a young mother of two has had her power shut off because she owes a measly $86 dollars to her utility company.

DFO: I’m not sure exactly what Bre’s new job is, but it sounds as though it has something to do with a local food bank. Above, you read some of her touching post about her new job. You can read the rest of the comment here, unless you want to remain oblivious to the poverty in this resort area. Bre doesn’t post often. When she does, however, she has something to say.
