ANGELS IN ACTION- I received this email early this morning. We take for granted the little things that may be common in our own household. But to someone in need it can be far out of reach. When I read this I knew we had to help.
My name is Carmen and you helped me at Christmas time.
I have fallen into a problem and I am wondering if you might be able to help me. I do not know where else to turn. I do not have family around here. My 5 year old son has the stomach virus and he has been throwing up all day. My hours have been cut at work and I do not get paid till this Wednesday. I have no money or transportation to get Lysol or cleaning supplies. I just hate to take a sick child and a 7 month old out on the bus. I have done the best I can with water and shampoo. But now I ran out of that. He went through both sets of bedding. Would you have any laundry detergent and cleaning supplies? I was also wondering also of you had saltine crackers and rice. The Dr said to keep him on a bland diet for a few days. I can pay you back as soon as I get paid this week.
Thank you, Carmen”
ANGELS INTO ACTION! I left my house early this morning and headed into Angels of God and picked up the items I could including a cute new pair of Batman pjs! Then off to the store to get the other needed items.
Packed everything in the car and headed to their house. I knocked on the door and stood there with all the bags surrounding me. Carmen opened the door and immediately she broke down in tears. “You truly are an Angel” she kept saying.
I have to THANK YOU! Each of you that donate makes a difference and allows us to help families like Carmen’s.
TOGETHER we are making a difference in our community!!
