To the editor:

On behalf of the Woman’s Club of Windsor, I would like to thank your paper for the coverage you gave our organization concerning our Bucket Project.

Windsor, N.C., experienced a terrible flood on Sept. 23. The Women of Windsor, Va., wanted to help our “sister town.”

We were told they needed cleaning supplies and grocery gift cards. A plea went out to our community, and we were able to pack 33 buckets of cleaning supplies and purchase $2,050 in gift cards for groceries.

The buckets and gift cards were taken to Windsor, N.C., on Oct. 6. Two days later Matthew hit and that town was again flooded. We had $379 come in after Oct. 6. Our club voted to add $121 to that amount so we could send them a check for $500 for the second flood relief fund.

I am so proud to be a member of a community that is so giving and so caring to our “neighbors” in North Carolina.
Thanks to all who helped make his project a success and to your paper for the coverage.
