Local organizations with big hearts

    In Sparta and Sussex county we are very fortunate to have organizations and individuals who do not seek recognition or the spotlight upon themselves.
    Recently, the Sparta Independent wrote an article on the law firm Laddey, Clark and Ryan concerning donations to our armed forces serving overseas. This was along with the Sparta Elks, with the help of John and Doreen Middleton, who not only helped deliver packages but also helped the Elks in donating funds to pay for the postage of donations.
    Also, the Sparta VFW, with the help of Pete Litchfield, made a generous donation to help ship more packages. We are amazed at the many friends and family who have helped with their generosity to supply these men and women serving our country with simple items such as snack bars, baby wipes and socks, to name a few.
    The Sparta Elks and the Sparta VFW are involved in many charitable causes without seeking recognition for their services.
    My wife Tina and I would like to thank our friends and family, laddey, Clark and Ryan, the Elks and the VFW, all of whom make our township a better place.
