To the Editor:
After reading a recent article https://www.villages-news.com/2023/01/27/homeless-woman-arrested-in-theft-of-food-from-wawa-in-lady-lake/ I have some questions. Was this woman arrested on a felony charge for stealing food from a Wawa or did she steal something more valuable? Also as a member of the local community I must ask what can we do as as responsible citizens to help those who are homeless, who are hungry, who have few options for survival? There is a homeless problem in our local area and it is very obvious when you drive around. I am not clear what that lady did to deserve a felony charge but my heart breaks for a human being who has to steal food in a community that claims to be so friendly. What can we do to bridge this wealth gap and help the needy in our surrounding communities?
