Interview with Eleanor Josaitis
QUESTION 12
SHEILA C. BERNARD:

So, tangibly, what did you do?



SHEILA C. BERNARD:

Oh good, so we're looking at real life now. What you did, where you went that you got clothes together, that kind of thing?

ELEANOR JOSAITIS:

The following day, my response was, "What can I do?" So I called a lot of friends and called people that I knew out in the area and asked if we could collect canned goods and clothing and whatever was needed, because that's what I was hearing was needed on television, and send some truck loads and, of clothing and food down to Sacred Heart Seminary where it was distributed, ah, and did whatever I could at the time. Um, again, in an effort to show my understanding of what was going on and accepting the invitation of a Dr. King who I thought was saying, "Come and get involved."
