Charlie and Margaret Grimes
Organized by: JoAnn Shepherd
I am asking for a donation for Charlie and my sister Margret Grimes who lives in a small town in Robersonville NC. Charlie is 85 years old, can barely walk, can’t read or write has worked on the farm and as a factory worker his entire life making below minimum wages. He never complained about his circumstances during the course of his life. He now does all the primary care for his elderly wife of 26 yrs. including cooking, cleaning etc. Margaret is 70yrs old and is considered legally blind. They’ve lived in unfair conditions for the most part of their lives. We have located them better living conditions and a safer environment within an elderly facility. The new facility will have central air, heat, essential appliances and handicap accommodations. This changes their living tremendously, with them now living off a fixed income I wanted to give them some glory days. It would be a blessing if we could help with their furniture, so that they could move without worries. They were approved for an apartment in Greenville NC for the Elderly citizens and have been accepted. We need help with the deposit and for some funding for furniture. I Jo Ann Shepherd am asking for a donation in the amount of $800.00 that will cover their $520.00 deposit and the rest for used furniture. I want to ensure they have a fresh start without losing the approval on the apartment. So if you would please grant this glory wish for this elderly couple, our family would be greatly appreciative.
