MORE CHANCES TO WIN! Have you ever wondered what your money actually does when you sell a raffle ticket or make a donation to the Distress Fund? Well, let me give you a few examples.
In 2019, thirteen members/families were helped by the Distress Fund. Some needed help with medical bills, some with medical necessities. Some just needed help with regular bills. One person needed help with burial expenses, and another had a house fire.
In 2020, surprisingly, there were only four distress cases, despite there being a pandemic, but still, we were able to help four people with burial expenses, healthcare expenses, medical equipment, and bills.
In 2021, while still in the throes of the pandemic, there were seven people who applied for help for legal issues, utility bills, medical help, and for 2022, so far, there have been five requests for help.
None of these people would have received any help in their time of great distress… without the Distress Fund. And there would be no Distress Fund, without you.
If you find yourself in a situation where you need a helping hand, please, call me and request help. Almost all of us have been in a situation at least once in our lives where we needed support. That’s what we are here for.
