Helping others results in a good deed [West Friendship]

One good turn deserves another and nowhere was that more in evidence than Dec. 29 when Josie O’Donnell delivered a box load of donations to the Saint James Thrift Shop in Mt. Airy. The next day, Josie was more than relieved when a good soul from the thrift shop called her to report that in the bottom of the carton was discovered O’Donnell’s billfold. Josie reports that not a single item was missing. What was that Tiny Tim declared? "God Bless Us Everyone."
