I am thankful that the Salvation Army Shelter is here in Wilmington ! I lived there for a year when I fell on hard times. They are a God send. They have a program there called "Homeward Bound" and thanks to them and some other good people in Wilmington, I now have an apartment of my own. I am thankful that the gentleman was found safe. Happy Thanksgiving ever body ! Sincerely, Terry L. Davis Sr.*
