LETTER: Company showed heart in time of family's need

-A A +A

 Last Saturday, I attended the funeral of a neighbor: Mrs. Elizabeth Gardner. Now the fact that I attended her funeral is not what this is about. You see, Mrs. Gardner was the mother of two daughters – Brenda and Donna – who work at Nationwide Uniform Corp.

We noticed that one would work and the other would stay at home and care for their mother – then it would be reversed. Nationwide allowed them to do this.

Now the point of this letter is to let the community know about this and to be appreciative of the plant and how it treats its employees. I know it was a wonderful thing in the care Brenda and Donna could give their mother in their last days.
