BENEFITING: FREDDY & LITTLE MASSI CALLING CORP
EVENT DATE: Dec 15, 2015
The above testimonial is a summary of our mission in a nutshell. Indeed, much of Freddy & Little Massi Calling Corp's work consists of providing emergency funds to families with children and elders whose resources do not allow them to meet their heating and electricity bills during the winter, be they Native American families living on the reservations or financially-strapped inner city families. When the temperatures drop to below freezing, this can be an extremely critical situation.
We at FLMCC believe that NO child or elder should ever have to go to bed in a freezing cold house. No family should risk seeing their kids or grandparents fall ill, or worse, in the deep of winter, just because they couldn't make ends meet.
Our mission is to help keep kids and elders warm.
Over the past three years we have come to the assistance of numerous families with children and elders who otherwise would have had to suffer in freezing cold homes with no way of heating them - no heat, no hot water, and very often no possibility of using the stove. This is unacceptable, and our mission is to help prevent this as far as our funds will allow. To do this we work with the local propane and utilities companies to get what is needed, to where it is needed, when it is needed.
Since January 2015, FLMCC has helped 13 families with small children, and elders, to keep their homes heated. The minimum amounts accepted by the propane companies (2014-2015) are between $200 and $250 dollars, and though limited, these amounts often play a critical role critical in tiding a family over until they are able to refill their tank, especially during periods of extremen cold and high wind chill factors.
Our supporters are our backbone in helping ensure children and elders to stay warm in winter, and we appreciate all that you do to make this possible as often as possible. We hope you will join us in our continuing efforts as we prepare for the coming winter. Thank you all so very much!
