One of the higher ups at CAPTAIN (the group feeding local poor children) liked the story I did recently on the plight of low income children in the summer. They approached Mr. Cassidy and asked if he would consider allowing a single reporter, me, to tag along today? He could have said ‘no’ because he’d have to know any story on this would dredge up his arrest. Instead he asked the woman in charge one question, “Will this help you?”
Not-for-profits have no budget to advertise so a story like mine tonight helps them by getting their name out there. Maybe someone with money sees it and decides to write a check next week to help buy lunches for more poor kids. Because of that she said, “Yes David, it would help.”
So please know letting the media film him wasn’t his idea or wish. He didn’t do this to make himself look good. He did it to help needy kids. Period. I thought some of you should know that.
