Sad that NIMBYs don’t want homeless or food bank near them

Dear editor,

I grew up in the Comox Valley on Harmston Avenue.

Dear editor,

I grew up in the Comox Valley on Harmston Avenue.

That’s when everyone knew everyone. The McPhees came by and wished you a happy new year. You could have tea with Mrs. Simms; Lawrence Burns was the fire chief.

It saddens me that now everyone is judgmental on the homeless and the hungry people in our Valley.

I was homeless two summers ago; I am very grateful for the Salvation Army shelter.

I stand in line every month at the food bank. I am very grateful for what they give me.

My mom taught me to treat people the way you want to be treated. She said that everyone is equal.

It’s sad that no one wants the homeless or the food bank in their neighbourhood, yet they want something done about it.
