Please help us spread the word to our greatest nation on earth.

The Family Store, Louisburg, NC

Two armed robbery in six weeks has left a family of four devastated and struggling just to feed their kid's by keeping their very low income, little country store operable, especially after the first robber wiped them out of cash & cigarettes. A few months back they took a loan so they could reopen again. The first robber had couple of robbery charges and his combined sentence was only 8 months in jail. The second robber is still at large!

They need your help to buy inventory, fix, and operate our small communities much needed little store. The store was built in 1935 so most of the wood is rotten, the building has sunk at the back over a foot, the chimney fell off, the floor joists have rotted, making the floor sag and unleveled all over the store. There are no stores close by that deep in the middle of nowhere but them. After all, of this, we want them to stay! Please help keep this family store opened!

Please help as much or as little as you can to save this family who is struggling to make ends meet with couple of hundreds weekly income for a family of four, who are poor but a happy family!

The past several decades they have been very active in reaching out to the community, offering advice and all kinds of support such as emotional support. Three years ago, they bought their first house, a foreclosure doublewide mobile home through an FHA mortgage program. It was an auctioned property, as is, where nobody knew what was in it till after the closing and it turned out to be a nightmare with 2 & 3 foot wide holes in walls, floors, and a lot more from re-wiring & re-plumbing so they could get a validation permit to move in. We tried to reach the extreme home makeover program without them knowing but we did not get any response back.

We are asking our friends to Please help some real good people that have been a big part of our community for several decades to keep this small store operating. It is part of their big dream of owning a gas station, a real house and creating more jobs for our community one day.

We would be very grateful for anything you can provide from putting the word out and/or donations to help.

In the name of every person in our community, we appreciate what you all can do to help them.

God Bless our beloved America. The Greatest Nation on Earth!
