Last year Peggy and David Miner were recipients of the Colonial Beach Eagles Christmas food baskets. Times were difficult then. But, fortunately, their situation changed for the better. This year, the Miners wanted to show how grateful they are.
Peggy called it their “giving back,” and so they did. Last Friday the Miners’ sons made a donation of $200 — $100 of that the boys earned through chores and good grades. Peggy and David matched it to come up with a generous donation for this year’s Eagles food basket distribution. Their “giving back” effort compliments the Eagles’ slogan of “people helping people.”
