Interview with Taylor Rogers
QUESTION 6
PAUL STECKLER:

How did the community come together to help you?

TAYLOR ROGERS:

With money. Raised money. They did everything.

PAUL STECKLER:

Can I, can I knock you for one second, just, when you say this, tell us how the community did, so that when I say "How did the community help you?" just say that the community did this as opposed to... How did the community help you?

TAYLOR ROGERS:

Well the community raised money, ah, and anything that they thought that we needed and then the ministers got involved and, and everybody just got involved. I know, we had meetings at Mason Temple, we could, pass around garbage can, give garbage cans of money. And that money went to help the strikers to try to keep those, keep them encouraged to stay out and give them a little money to take home to their families and have food. Over at Clayborn Temple we had food that people could go around to get to feed their families and the international union sent money and money came in from all over the country so that we could survive.
