A Front Porch Forum subscriber to the Charlotte Shore Neighborhood Forum just posted this…

Do you have a recliner in your house that you are no longer using? I have a dear 77 year old friend in Burlington who has had serious circulation problems in her legs and is looking for relief by resting in a comfortable recliner. I will offer to pay for it (under $200) and deliver it to her.

So, not only is she going to great lengths to help a friend in need, but she’s offering dozens of nearby neighbors the opportunity to join that effort… and to bear witness to this act. And we’re all a little better for it.
