Neediest Cases Make a Donation
We don't know who Brett is, but the Daily Mail's Neediest Cases Appeal is $112.73 richer for his efforts to save money in "Brett's Pickle Jar."
We can attest to the authenticity, too, because the jar smells like pickles. It contained a check, bills and change and came with instructions to give the money to the appeal.
A loving sister also sent a donation on behalf of her brother-in-law for his birthday. She noted he is generous, kind and giving.
"When I asked him gift ideas this year, Gary indicated that he didn't want or need anything but would like a donation made to this worthy cause," Teresa Tarr wrote about her brother-in-law, Gary.
Meantime, the Kanawha Valley Chapter of Credit Unions organized an auction and donated proceeds to the appeal.
To date, these and other donations have brought the fund to $19,629.63. Already, checks have been mailed to caseworkers for the first published cases. Their needs will be met first and then proceeds will be divided among hundreds of others also submitted this year.
