Did casino pick its poor?


To the Editor:

I was a bit upset with the Oxford Casino for picking and choosing food pantry recipients!  Do they not realize that people from Harrison, Naples, Bridgton, Sweden and other food pantries in the area also go to Oxford Casino to gamble and spend their hard earned money?

Why was Oxford, Poland, Norway, Mechanic Falls and Lewiston more important than the others in the area?  We are trying to feed the poor also, and we have had many donations from individuals and organizations in the area, but we can always use more.

Right now, here in Harrison, we could use more donations of food, money and good used clothing. If anyone could help, please call 890-9742 or just drop off clothing in the drop box just outside the Harrison Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Harrison. All donations are much appreciated.

Thank you,

Assistant Director, Imelda Arris
