Letter to the editor: Thank you, Sondra, and Zoot

Sondra fit me in for photo show at Zoot, but that was just the start of it.

The photos were of families living in a Garbage Dump Community in Guatemala City, and the nonprofit, Safe Passage, which helps them.  

Sondra packed her counter area with material from Safe Passage, both to inform and sell; donated a portion of the sale of Guatemala coffee beans; and hosted a lively after-hours reception. She, and her lovely kids who both work there plus baristas Kat and Sarah, talked up the cause. 

In one month, customers filled the donation jar by the cash register with more than $1,000, all going to help a group of high school students led by Karen Hansen through the Midcoast Interact Club take a volunteering trip there in April. 

How lucky we all are to have Sondra, and Zoot, in Camden.
