Some of the children were in desperate need of hygiene supplies and were so disadvantaged, they’d never owned their own books. They were so happy to receive help.
The mother of two of the girls says they get food stamps and her parents’ social security covers the rent, but there is little to nothing left over for purchasing cleaning and personal care supplies.
They don’t have a car, and the lunch shop where the mom was able to walk to work has closed down. To make matter worse, the shop apparently never turned in wages that could have created unemployment eligibility.
We were able to help them. The 10-year-old told our volunteer that she had never had her very own book before. We were able to supply them with hygiene supplies and new reading books. The girls were so happy.
