High Urgency Request
A family is in need of assistance. There is a 65-year-old grandmother who is raising her 9-year-old granddaughter. They were recently put out of their home due to the condition of the home. This grandmother has had custody of her granddaughter for many years. The child's mother passed away and the father has been in and out of jail. The grandmother and the child are currently living in a shelter and can only live there for 30 days. We are looking for 500 dollars to help cover the cost of electrical repairs to help get this grandmother and her granddaughter back into their home. Donations of any amount would be greatly appreciated.
