While $1,000 may not solve every problem for every person in the aftermath of such a destructive fire, it’s a greatly appreciated leg-up to put toward resources or relocation. “I decided to put it toward rent. Like getting a new house,” Harris added.
As for what Wilson expects to get from his generous gesture, he said, “If they take away from this, ‘some guy 600 miles away thought enough to come up here and give them a check,’ that’s all the compensation I want out of it."
“If they see this and decide, ‘hey I can do something,’” Wilson added, “Gee, what a great thing that would be."
“It’s incredible to think that someone could be so kindhearted,” said James Clery, an 11th grader at PHS.
“I do hope that that man knows that I’m very thankful,” Harris said.
