Many Deserve ‘Thanks’
While the gas companies provided much needed assistance in the wake of recent flooding and deserve our thanks, they will recoup most of their expenditures via charitable deductions and/or higher gas prices. The people deserving our thanks are those who turned out to assist individuals and businesses, without reimbursement and without issuing a press release.
Our thanks should go to the firemen, church groups, civic groups and individuals who provided labor, shelter, clothes, meals, transportation, shots, money and comfort during this trying time. Additionally, our thanks should go to the many other companies in the area who provided work crews and donations to assist the flood victims.
