Letter To The Editor

As most of you know, our Maples' community was severely impacted by the tornados which ravaged much of Alabama at the end of April. Many of our employees suffered directly or had friends or family who suffered in different ways - loss of property, loss of possessions, or most horrible, loss of life.
     Following the tornados, Maples' management took various measures to help those in need, including the establishment of the Maples Tornado Victims Fund.
     We are so grateful for the outpouring of support, both monetary and physical, that we have received for our employees from the textiles industry in general, and our suppliers specifically. With your support, the fund is assisting the numerous Maples Rugs employees impacted by the terrible events of April 27. Thank you for your generosity and support of our employees.
- Maples Industries, Scottsboro, Ga.
