Letter: We must care for all our citizens

Posted

Dear Editor,

We must care for all our citizens.

It has recently come to my attention that the homeless shelter Pete Pascua is providing in the trailer park off Illinois Route 251 is being denied power. Not being fully aware of all the particulars involved, as a concerned resident of Rochelle, a senior citizen and a follower of Jesus, I feel compelled to speak out on this inhumane and unacceptable denial of warm shelter and meals for our less fortunate citizens. 

Please take the necessary action to restore power for heat and cooking to the shelter Pete so generously provides for our homeless and needy. 

Hopefully he will soon be able to return to his shelter downtown.

Sam Oymaian, Rochelle
