of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 4/14/1949.
Donations asked for Fire Victim
As you no doubt recall, a short time ago Creed Brooks had the misfortune
of losing his home and all his possessions by fire. The same day
L.B. Carroll opened the doors of a small garage to this family for temporary
living quarters and on the same day they were provided with some bedding
and other equipment that they might have a place to live temporarily.
As everyone knows Mr. Brooks is a cripple which handicaps him from manual
labor and I am told his financial condition is such that he will not be
able to rebuild his home back. Therefore I am making an appeal to
the people of Calhoun County that we help in some way that this family
might have a place to live. If enough people are interested in this
project to send a contribution either money, labor or material I will be
glad to act as agent for same and will seek advice and help in planning
through a committee of people who know the building trade.
Please let me hear from you as I feel that we who have comfortable home
should not be satisfied to sit back and not try to help our neighbors when
they are in trouble.
