SCOTT FARMELANT’S depiction of the Framingham Samaritans as a “tiny segment” of the organization is shockingly demeaning and disrespectful (“Some put personal grievances ahead of group’s mission,” Letters, June 15). Framingham had over 100 active volunteers, many who stayed months, years, even decades beyond the initial nine-month volunteer commitment to continue to answer calls and take on training and leadership roles within the organization.
Within a week of closure, nearly two-thirds of our team were banding together to be there for one another in support and solidarity as true Befrienders. There is nothing tiny about us. We are strong, we are committed, and we are united.
