I'd love to come up with different ways I can contact local businesses in Lexington, KY to help with a family in need that I know.
The mother, lost her job oin Sept. 2012 Has 2 children, signed up for unemplyment and is drawing 39.00 per week in unemployment benefits. Her oldest daughter is working 2 part time jobs and still is not enough to pay the monthly bills. The mother, is actively searching for employment daily, almost all day long. She stills owes rent for October, now also for November at 1100. per month now owing total of 2200.. She has no way to pay for either months rent. She was served with an eviction notice and has 7 days to have everything out. (she has to be out on or before Saturday, November 24th, 2012) They have no money to move. The mother had 2 interviews this week, praying she gets one of those jobs. In the mean time, the Holidays are approaching very quickly. Needless to say there is no finances available for holidays either.
IF you are a local business in Lexington, KY or surrounding counties and you can help, PLEASE do so. I asked her for and she gave me copies of unemployment, eviciton notice etc, and I have her permission to share the documentation with anyone who can help. (it's really sad that so many people abuse help of others to the point where people in need have to supply documentation to prove they are in serious need)
Thank you very much for your time.
