The breadwinner had lost long term employment due to company closure, the family the decided to invest their savings in a training course to open a new career. During the training the breadwinner became seriously ill. The family was doing everything possible to help themselves, including the wife working a minimum wage job while caring for her husband. However, they were losing the battle, they had been eating poorly for several months and were due to be evicted the week before Christmas.
Our Krewe was able to pay two months rent (directly to the property manager) and delivered a holiday dinner. The family is now back on their feet and have asked to join the Krewe to help us raise money for others in dire need.
