Help for a member of our community

From: duchess
Sent on: Sunday, December 11, 2011 10:45 AM

I wanted to put this out there to everyone.

Jennie-a meetup member and loved one to our community, is in dire need of help.

She lives in a trailer home that is literally falling apart. She is on disability/social security and is not able to pay for any repairs-she just barely makes any of her bills!

Her insurance company denied her coverage because of the condition of her home. Hurricane Irene came and did further damage to her place.  When she went to FEMA, they denied her because she had no home insurance.

There are holes in her kitchen floor.  Mold because of the flooding.  Her furnace just went out, with no $ to pay for any of these repairs.  The trailer home administration wants to evict her as well-it's all just spiraling.


What I am asking for is help for Jennie.  A bunch of us went over to her home with rakes and tools to clean up her place.  We bought some material, but more needs to be done. 

If you can, can you lend a hand? Maybe-if you are handy-you can help with some of the repairs?  We need 2 inch screws, insulation and kitchen cabinets (the ones in her home are rotting out so if you have used cabinets-let us know) bookcases..some roofing..and if you understand how to fix a furnace, that is a big plus!


I will be at the store taking in any donations of material, manpower or funds for Jennie.  Write to me here if you have any questions!

Thanking everyone in advance and a BIG thank you to all who helped out yesterday!
