Can you spare a quarter?

December 13, 2014

Bernie Buffone is on a mission to raise funds for St. Jude's Hospital one quarter at a time.
“Everybody has a quarter in their pocket,” Buffone said with his no nonsense, Pennsylvanian accent. “I want everybody to send in a quarter to St. Jude's Hospital under Kitten Run 2, so we get the credit for it. This is not about stars asking the public for $19 a month. I need it form the American working people. Everyone has a quarter in their pocket.”

'As long as the Lord wants,' Delores will keep adapting

December 11, 2014

Much like the employees of the post office Delores Albert sits adjacent to, neither rain nor sleet — nor complaints — have kept her from her appointed rounds.
