Casa For Carl
Organized by: Casa For Carl
EVENT DATE Apr 01, 2016
The trailer Carl Lake currently lives in has deteriorated beyond repair and to the point that it is no longer safe for him to live in. He has proudly been a part of the maintenance team at the school district for almost 20 years and has lived in Mertzon almost his entore life! He is truly loved by all. With the passing of his father a few years ago, Carl has been left without any family locally. Our efforts began as a desire to raise the funds needed to provide Carl with a new home. But, recently, by the GRACE OF GOD, a home was donated to Carl anonymously. He now has a nice house to call home! However, as wonderful as that news is, our work is not done.
A group in the community will continue to raise funds in order to:
- Build a fenced backyard and carport for Carl
- Furnish the house with some much needed furniture
- Help Carl with insurance and taxes
- Purchase appliances
At the moment, our primary need is monetary donations in order to make Carl's house a home!
Through Crowdrise, Carl will get 97% of what is donated and ALL of that will go to our efforts to make a home for Carl and help him get established. The remaining 3% goes to credit card processing and administravtive fees. ALL FUNDS DONATED GO DIRECTLY INTO AN ACCOUNT SET UP FOR HELPING CARL.
