City, church help out women's shelter

Over the past 10 years or so, members of Walton Hills Church of Christ and I have been involved in helping those in need at the Cuyahoga County Women's Homeless Shelter.

Recently, I became aware of the need for lockers for women to have a secure place to store their personals while staying at the shelter.

Several months went by and I became aware that the city of Twinsburg plans to demolish the old high school on E. Aurora Road.

I contacted Mayor Ted Yates' office and spoke to Morgan White, the mayor's secretary, who in turn directed me to Chris Campbell, director of the Twinsburg Public Works Department. Campbell informed me he would check the condition of the lockers and get back to me.

It was determined the lockers were in good condition. The next thing I know I am talking to Dennis Szydlowski, one of the service department foremen. Now, more than 50 lockers are being donated.

I maintain the belief that God works in mysterious ways and had His hand in this endeavor, directing me in the way to accomplish our goal. I wish to thank all of the people from Twinsburg who were involved, especially those in the service department who had to do all the grunt work to remove the lockers and make repairs before they could be donated.
