I would like to thank Wal-Mart and Ken Walton.
Lots of time we hear such negative things. But I just wanted to point out a bright spot in Danville, and that is the local Wal-Mart. We run the Isaiah House Gospel Rescue Mission for the eight-county area, serving a population of more than 100,000, and whenever we needed anything, Ken and his staff are always there. They are always polite and considerate as well as compassionate - something that I wouldn't really have expected in such a large company. And even though it is large, they maintain that hometown feeling.
Ken has made himself available numerous times:
* When we expanded how many people we could serve and needed blankets, sheets, towels and so on.
* When summer hit and we had put people in our upstairs rooms, which were not air conditioned, Wal-Mart came to the rescue when many others said no.
