A mother of two small children was pushed in a wheel chair to Open Door. She was so severely beaten by her husband, she was hospitalized. Still needing additional surgeries, she was released. The stay was so long, her home had been evicted: she lost everything and so did her children. No clothing, toys, household items. Starting again, she came to us for help and direction. With your funds we provided food, clothing, and household items. Her children received clothing, new pajamas, and a few toys too. One of our Resale Volunteer’s heart went out to this young woman, and she used her own funds to gift her several pieces of jewelry to lighten day. These simple acts of kindness brought her to tears of gratitude and the knowledge that someone cared.
