MY TURN: Always willing to help

WMC-TV 5 V.P. & General Manager Lee Meredith WMC-TV 5 V.P. & General Manager Lee Meredith

On behalf of everyone at WMC-TV 5, I want to thank all of the people who came by the station yesterday to donate money to the family that lost so much in the tragic fire in Orange Mound neighborhood of Memphis.  Seven people died in that fire last weekend, including five children.

One of the best qualities of the people who live here in the Mid-South is that they are willing to step up to help at times when their neighbors are in need, and that was certainly the case yesterday. People came by the station from dawn to dusk to drop off their donations and by the end of the day, we had raised more than $20,000 for the Poole Family Fund.

I also want to thank the Memphis Police and Fire Departments and all the other people and companies who joined in to make this a successful event. If you were unable to donate, but you would still like to help the Poole family, you can make a donation at any area Regions Bank.

That's my turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
