May 27, 2014 | 02:34 PMFox Charities, and all of you, have again come to the rescue of our poverty stricken fellow Americans. The Spring Fox Charities 2014 $10,000 Matching Grant was matched by your gracious support.
The many senior citizens, the handicapped, single mothers, children and working poor families that turned to us as their last hope for assistance are so grateful all of you were there to help.
Fox Charities requested their matching funds be applied to our transportation assistance program. They understand the importance of reliable transportation for job retention, life saving medical care and the ability to maintain an independent lifestyle for the handicapped. Your matching funds have been a lifesaver for those facing impending homelessness and utility disconnection.
All of us at The Time Is Now to Help and those we serve in our communities are so grateful for your wonderful Caring and Sharing support. God bless all of you.
This is how all of us helped:
Rent/shelter = $5,000
All of us together have prevented 13 of our fellow Americans from becoming homeless. We helped a woman suffering from brain cancer to remain in her shelter while undergoing treatment. We helped another woman struggling to overcome lung cancer not have to endure homelessness along with her grueling chemotherapy. Single mothers with children have not had to uproot their families to live in cars.
You and Fox Charities have made all this possible. We could never have provided this assistance without you there by our side every step of the way. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Utilities = $5,286
Electricity: $2,700 + Gas: $2,586
Thanks to the Spring 2014 Fox Charities $10,000 Matching Grant, and your generosity, we paid overdue gas and electric utilities. While we all welcome spring and the warm weather that is sure to come many poverty stricken dread the utility disconnections that accompany the season. Unpaid high utility bills now face disconnection.
We have prevented the disconnection and reconnected utilities for 12 seniors, women and children. These fellow creations could be your neighbor, your classmate, someone sitting next to you in church, suffering in silence and shame. You, Fox Charities and The Time Is Now to Help, together, have stopped those pains of poverty. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to provide this assistance to many of our neighbors in need.
Transportation = $9,714
The van donated to Harry Bublitz in 2006 was returned to The Time Is Now to Help by his son. This van provided safe transportation for Harry and his wheelchair for almost eight years prior to our good friend’s passing. After a safety check the handicap van has been given to another person in need of a handicap accessible van with a wheelchair lift. Your donations paid for the safety check and the registration.
Two disabled senior citizens in desperate need of car repairs were provided the necessary repairs. Two single mothers living in fear of losing their jobs were so grateful to have their cars restored to good running order. A handicap accessible van was repaired for a gentleman struggling in poverty and unable to pay for these repairs. Gas vouchers were provided to many struggling to cover the cost of gas to maintain their employment.
Your donations matched by the Spring 2014 Fox Charities $10,000 Matching Grant changed the lives for many working poor families, single parents, the handicapped and elderly fellow creations.
Grand total = $20,000
Every penny you donated, along with Fox Charities $10,000 matching funds, went to assist the poverty stricken. Together we make a big difference with your donations to provide desperately needed poverty relief.
My dear readers and friends, what we do together is so special. Helping our fellow creations, our caring and sharing, doing our good works, is life changing for those we help. God bless all of you for making our The Time Is Now to Help so special. Together we will continue to remove the many pains of poverty including, hunger, loneliness, fear, homelessness and much more. Together we provide hope, compassion, care, shelter, food ... all the necessities of daily life, through our caring and sharing. God bless all of you for helping and Fox Charities for again providing a successful matching grant opportunity.
Health and happiness,
God bless everyone, W.C./Sal
