TRANSPORTATION TO CLASS
In order to get to classes and take her daughter to school, a young woman working on a nursing degree needed help with car repairs. With the help of a discount one of our vendors gave, plus the limited amount she could provide, the fairies grant covered the difference and got her back on the road.
Another woman who has a job and was taking cosmetology classes had her purse containing financial aid money and cash from her paycheck stolen. This money was to be used for her rent, food, diapers, and car tags. The Salvation Army helped out as well as our grant which covered tags and taxes.
A single mother of five needed a washing machine. The fairies encouraged her to shop around and find a good deal; and with the help of a grant from the fairies she was able to purchase a working washing machine.
DIAPERS AND WIPES
A woman documented that she had been shorted on her social security check and as a result, she was unable to cover her expenses while the problem was being resolved. A Salvation Army representative went with her to buy two month’s supply of diapers and wipes for her two small children, using a grant from the fairies to pay for the items.
The freezing temperatures shattered the back window of a woman’s car. A grant from the fairies was used to replace the window and she was then able to transport her children to school and herself to job interviews.
