Amy posted a note on Front Porch Forum seeking donations yesterday in Burlington’s South End.  Today she followed up with this…

Thanks so much for your generous response to my request for household goods for Bethan, the young mother in need.  We had a great time yesterday driving around picking things up from all you kind folks.  It was like being Santa in reverse.  Then we set her up in her new apartment and voila, a functional home.  I know this request came on no notice.  It’s great to know a neighborhood can rally for a good cause so quickly.  On behalf of Bethan and her baby, thank you all.
