Letter to the Editor: A Heartwarming Story from Cape Hatteras United Methodist Men – The Coastland Times
Dennis Carroll, director of Cape Hatteras United Methodist Men, posted the following:
Hello, Merry Christmas to you all!
We have many heartwarming stories throughout the year. I thought I would pass on a little Christmas story about Jay Dimig, one of our dedicated volunteers.
Jay is a big tough guy with an equally big heart. We responded to a request from social services to help a lady and her young children, who were homeless just before Christmas. We were able to help them get into a rental trailer. Jay, along with Bob Leh, another volunteer, drove his truck and trailer about 130 miles to pick up donated furniture and appliances from various sources, and had the family move in before Christmas.
Jay cried as he said they barely put a dresser in a little girl’s bedroom before she folded her clothes and put them in, along with her toy animals. She had never had a room of her own. Jay said “that made my Christmas” (of course Jay came back with Christmas presents).
May God bless you all for your contribution to improving the lives of others.
