Subject: Camper/ Homeless Person in the woods near the school
Good day. I hope this note finds you well. This morning while walking our dog in Fort Ward Park I noticed a camper, and, or homeless person, heavily wrapped and sleeping in the woods to the right corner of the soccer field behind the St. Stephens-St. Agnes Middle School. I could only see a small portion of his face so I'm not sure I have seen him before. I will be letting the Alexandria Parks & Recreation Department as well as St. Stephens-St. Agnes Middle School know. I do have several photos which will be available this evening.
Helping the homeless is a good thing and Alexandria has a good network of private organizations that provide people with help finding shelters. It may be that the person is honorable. However, park users and students may be at risk if he is not.
All my best,
J. Glenn Eugster
