Thanks to You this Family has renewed Hope
Just when Jerry thought things couldn't get any worse, they did. Jerry had just been laid off from his job. A seasonal worker, he knew that day would come, but it still hurt when it happened. He and his wife, Debbie, were already raising a family on a limited budget, and now things were even tighter. But before Jerry hand a chance to even think about how they'd make ends meet, something even worse happened to his family. Debbie was diagnosed with cancer. She had to start treatment right away.
As Jerry took care of his children and sick wife, medical bills started piling up. So did their stress levels. To ease the tension, the family would gather in front of the TV to watch a favorite movie. But just as they finally found something to provide a bit of relief, the power went out---right in the middle of the movie. Having fallen behind on their utility payments, the electric company shut off their service.
Back to School Shopping with The Salvation Army
On Monday, August 13th 80 children were invited to a back to school shopping experience with The Salvation Army.ee We met families at the Eastside Kohl's where young people gathered clothing, shoes and/or school supplies that would help them start their new school you off on the right foot. This event is made possible through the Hofer Trust. Preparing kids for a successful school year can become rather costly. We're so grateful for the opportunity to help families prepare for this each year. A huge thank you to the Eastside Kohl's and their amazing staff for letting us come in early & for their patience and kindness towards our families.
Kids deserve the chance to laugh and be kids. We fight so more kids will have that chance. Learn about how The Salvation Army serves families in underserved communities, and how you can help.salar.my/EquipFamilies
