I'm looking to help a family get back on their feet
Organized by: Chris Bamsey
The family lives on my street and are the type of people that go out of their way to be kind to all the neighbors and keep their house tidy looking. The mom stays at home with 2 kids and father had a good job. The father got badly hurt 3 years ago and as a result he lost his job and has been in a wheelchair ever since. It recently was found out that things for this family are worse than appears. They are behind in their property taxes and close to loosing their house. The house was built by his grandfather and was going to be passed down to the kids. I don't have the kind of money needed to save them and they aren't aware that I'm trying to raise money for them. I recently sold my boat for $7000.00 to go towards the taxes. After I discovered what they were going through and had a few sleepless nights thinking that this could just have easily happened to me.I decided the boat I rarely use could go to better use for them. I've never had to ask for help before and hopefully never will have to but I can't help feeling that we need to put ourselves in other people's shoes from time to time and do the right thing by helping others. I am looking at other items I can do without and tryin to make a dent in their tax bill. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
