Today, we would like to share a “Case of the Week” from our Hartselle Alabama, office, it is more of a story, but you will enjoy.
Today, we have a “Case of the Week” from our Hartselle Alabama office as told by Bob Wheeler, our Regional Manager there.
A veteran, a real gentleman came in this past week. Although he didn’t want to ask for help, he was really down and out and in need of a meal. Our pantry was full, we were able to box up a generous supply of groceries immediately. We also helped him fill out paper work for some assistance with his most immediate financial problems.
This week, we would like to share a “Case of the Week” from our Sarasota office as told by Bob Graham, our Regional Manager.
My contact at Goodwill asked us to assist a 61 year old vet who recently was laid off when his cardiologist insisted – following his third heart problem – that he no longer do heavy lifting. He’s fallen behind on his water bill since he’s lost that income with only a 10% service related disability and his wife has a low paying job. In addition to themselves, they care for a 9 year old granddaughter as his wife’s daughter is – again – incarcerated and the father is unknown. I guaranteed the overdue payment and he’s really grateful.
Another “Case of the Week” from our Sarasota FL office presented by Bob Graham, Regional Manager.
Thru referral from another agency, I was contacted by a vet – disabled from an auto accident and currently unable to work. He takes care of a disabled 19 year old (“mental capacity of a 12 year old”) granddaughter as both of her parents are in heroin rehab. The veteran had put together all available funds to cover rent, but now no food or $ for personal items until SS check in early Feb – so we helped him get over this short term hump. He was very grateful and said he would help us in the future in any way he can.
