On Sunday, Jan. 13 at about 5 p.m., I was in the Marshall Kwik Trip. Somehow I dropped my little bank envelope with some money in it. Checking pockets, purse and the floor and realizing the line behind me was getting longer, I started writing a check.
The cashiers were still looking for me until one of them said that someone had turned it in and that he had it. The lady who found it was still in the store and I had a chance to thank her and offer her a small token to show my appreciation for her help and honesty. She refused my token, but was very kind and accepted my thanks. I didn’t think to ask her for her name, and no idea if she was local or not.
That lady and the cashiers at Kwik Trip instilled my belief that there are a lot of good people among us. They showed how if we would all just look out for each other and help where we can, even if we are strangers, it gives people hope and happiness.
Thank you to my unknown best friend and the Marshall Kwik Trip cashiers for your help. Love your neighbors!
We would like to thank the managers and staff at the Piggly Wiggly grocery store for undertaking the Round- Up Program to generate money for local charity groups, and all the customers who donated money by rounding up.
The money given to our Groceries for Growth Program will be used to continue providing weekend food assistance to young students attending the Waterloo school system, and assist us in our efforts to expand the program for the 2019-2020 school year.
Thanks to all for your participation in the round-up.
