Letter: Cheerwine’s gift will help RHM make a difference
Salisbury is a town that revels in its historical background and homegrown entrepreneurship. I was both proud and excited to attend the recent Cheerwine Festival for many reasons.
I am in awe of the altruism shown by Cheerwine in choosing to have proceeds from drink sales benefit our organization and the recycling proceeds to benefit Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary.
With almost 30 percent of the Salisbury population living below the poverty line, we work hard to prevent homelessness in the community and work with individuals in crisis to regain the stability needed to rise above difficult times. It takes the strength of a loving group of people to come together and lend a hand — working together to make our town a place that makes us all proud.
With the help of companies like Cheerwine and many gracious individuals, we can make a difference in the lives of our most fragile citizens. I applaud and thank those who consistently show acts of selflessness for the betterment of this community. It takes time and it takes a village — but together, we are making a difference. In this case, one Cheerwine at a time.
