Raise the Roof (+windows) for Barb
Organized by: Nicolle Bauer
Barbara Bauer Smith, my close friend who also happens to be my sister-in-law, is among the bravest, hardest-working moms that I know. Despite increasing pain and fatigue from lupus and fibromyalgia flare-ups, she has often worked over 50 hours a week as a medical assistant to provide for her two wonderful children.
A couple of years ago, she was able to purchase a house built in the 1920s but needs some help to make it a dry, safe home for her family. Water from rain and snow leaks into her daughter’s bedroom, so a new roof is needed. As the photos show, the original windows are deteriorating and need to be replaced. The furnace in the house was intended for a modular home, and although a friend donated a new furnace, she needs someone to install it. She has managed to set aside $1,600 in her home improvement fund, and I hope that you will join me to raise an additional $8,400. Any amount that you can give would be greatly appreciated!
