Keep the money at home

Concerning the article about off-duty police officers taking children on a spending spree (VND, Dec. 19): Although I think this is a great and wonderful thing, why would they take $40,000 out of a struggling town that pays their wages?

We have a Kmart with local people working there who probably donated to the cause with their hard-earned money. Not only did they go to a Wal-Mart for the spree, they went to one not even in their own tax base (Delmont).

Did they go there because they thought they would get more bang for their buck? Not always true.

People really need to start thinking about local businesses.
