Laura White of Hudson would like to give back. A few weeks ago she responded to an item placed in the Reader's Exchange column by Marge Swickheimer. Marge was giving away #5033 bags for a Sears Kenmore Canister Vacuum. Marge kindly sent them to Laura, but now Laura has more vacuum cleaner bags than she can use (she has about a dozen extras). If these bags match your vacuum model, and you'd like them, give Laura a call at (727) 862-4715.
