Earlier today I received a call from a Hastingson Hudsonwoman who needs the help of our community. She is disabled – has serious spinal problems (her doctor said that surgery would kill her), no hip, has rare blood problems, has difficulty walking. She lives with her daughter (who is unemployed) and her daughter’s two kids: 6 and 8 year olds. Her husband died of surgery when he was 30 years old. Because of her financial situation she can receive incoming telephone calls, can’t make outgoing calls. The 6 & 8 year olds have no Christmas tree. They can’t afford toys.
If residents are interested in helping – we would appreciate the following
1) A Christmas tree for her 6 & 8 year olds to enjoy
2) toys for the 6 & 8 year olds
3) food for the holidays or donations (she is having difficulty paying rent). She is on section 8. She is living on social security disability.
4) She has a Con Ed turn off notice and can benefit if she had financial assistance.
Please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and advise me if you are willing to help and how you think you can help. I will provide you with contact information so you can speak to her directly, if you’d like. I hope you can help…. PAUL FEINER
