Heartfelt gift

Jim and Jane Orgel of Bladenboro stopped by the Bladen Journal office on Friday morning with 13 bags filled with blankets and sleeping bags, along with towels and bars of soap, and presented them to GM/Editor W. Curt Vincent for the newspaper’s third annual ‘Roger’s Wish’ project. The donation was a gift from the Orgels and Zion Hill Baptist Church’s Senior Adult Sunday School Class. The collection will end at 5 p.m. Monday, and the area’s homeless and needy will be invited to the Bladen Journal on Friday, Nov. 6, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to select an item for themselves.
