Woodville resident gets keys new home

Poole House


Workers with the Samaritans Purse organization presented Woodville resident Alfaye Poole with the keys to her new home on Monday afternoon. Poole, who lost her home during Hurricane Harvey, is the first Tyler County recipient to have her home replaced by the organization. Samaritans Purse is an international donor-funded organization and focuses its work on disaster relief. Poole was overjoyed. “I just want to thank y’all,” she said. Poole shared how her faith in God has kept her going through struggles of the past couple of years. Poole is shown with Margaret Marsh of Catholic Charities, Kimberly Cline of Rep. James White’s office and Rep. White. (CHRIS EDWARDS | TCB)
