Update on Alicia and Emma
I wanted to update everyone on Alicia’s story that I posted last week . I asked you to chip in and help and you did. We raised almost $1000. We were able to pay for one month in an efficiency motel for Alicia and her daughter, Emma. We also used those funds to buy some essentials. One of the donors asked that we spend some of their donation on Emma. It just so happened that she had a birthday Tuesday so we were able to make it a special one with those funds.
Thanks to everyone who donated. It’s a pretty fantastic feeling to be able to help someone out of a tough situation and it couldn’t happen without your help. I also want to thank Kim and Rodney from Backstreet Arts for helping me figure out how to connect Alicia to the necessary resources.
We’re not finished. The next step is assisting Alicia in finding a job. We have some leads that we’re working on but nothing definite yet. We also want to help with some dental work that needs to be taken care of due to some childhood medical issues that Alicia had to go through.
Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any leads on either work in the Newnan area or if you can assist with the dental work.
