Thanks to a kind-hearted person

Dear editor,

As there are many good samaritans at this time of year, in both Campbell River and Courtenay, I feel we should recognize a person who dedicates her time to supporting charities such as Help Fill a Dream and orphanages in Puerto Vallarta.

She has also taken time each year for five years to purchase hats, mitts, gloves, socks, oranges and candy for 300 Christmas bags that she puts together herself, and takes her family and hands them out personally to the homeless in Courtenay and Campbell River.

I can’t say thank you enough to the most kind-hearted person. Melissa Ingram is always a helping hand with the support of her husband Darcy Ingram and DKI Services. The homeless people in both communities and the shelters look forward to and appreciate this every year.

Jenny Jackson,

Courtenay
