Oh sweet Lynne...we have known her since the beginning. She used to hold the food signs with George at the convenience store across the streeet from Young's Market. Today we found her sitting in a field all by herself, and rather distraught. She said she wanted to go home to Atlanta. So, we set about to make that happen.
We took her to Westbrook where we store our items for the homeless and found her new clothes, shoes, and some toiletries to clean up with. We sent her off into the bathroom to clean up and she came out looking much more presentable for a bus ride.
Next we made our way to the bus station where we purchased her a ticket to Atlanta and let her make a phone call so someone would know she was coming. She tried to call her pastor at Salem Baptist Church in McDonough, GA., although she was only able to leave a message.
Once her ticket was purchased and she had made her phone call, we gave her $20 for lunch and let her go through security.
