Letter: Local Reaction to Storm Inspires Pride

Carol Schneider says many local residents benefited from the kindness and quick-thinking of the Saucon Valley School District's administration and staff during the recent power outages.

Letter: Local Reaction to Storm Inspires Pride

To the Editor:

I would like to thank Dr. Sandra Fellin and Wally Zimpfer, both from Saucon Valley School District. These two people were quick to get a handle on the needs of the residents within the school district by putting together a warming station/shelter for those affected (by the power outages).

A fellow co-worker and I volunteered on Saturday night at the SVSD shelter/warming station and we saw firsthand how residents of the school district (Lower Saucon Township and Hellertown Borough) benefited from their kindness. 

As Dr. Fellin stated to me, “it takes a team,” and she is absolutely correct. I would also like to thank Giant in Hellertown, the Hellertown Diner and the many residents who donated food to the shelter and all the SVSD teachers (staff) that volunteered, along with the residents who volunteered to staff the shelter too.

I would also like to mention all the updates from the Patch, Lower Saucon Township and Hellertown Borough were heaven-sent for those of us with smartphones and/or Internet access.

What a wonderful school district, township and borough we live in.

Many thanks,

Carol Schneider
