Mrs. Sanchez, a teacher within the Wauconda school district, wondered why her young student was having difficulties getting to school on time, was often hungry and looked tired. A few weeks later, another teacher discovered this young child, along with his entire family, was living out of a car. Homeless and too timid to ask for help, Mrs. Sanchez found assistance from the community on their behalf. One caring person secured a basement apartment at a reasonable rent. Others picked up a comfortable couch and some basic furniture. When Pastor Dawn of Messiah Lutheran Church heard about this family’s desperate situation, she called Love INC Southwest.
We met Mrs. Sanchez, this wonderful and caring woman, when she drove her own pickup truck to our warehouse after school. Together, we loaded two new mattresses and frames into the back of her truck along with colorful sheets and blankets. Finally, we gave the family a large blessing basket filled with the kinds of things all children should have including a coloring book, box of crayons, and a few toys for fun.
Love INC Southwest is positioned and able to help other neighbors in need of a decent bed and a little kindness. Thank you for your continued support. Together, we can share God’s Grace through the dignity of a bed, a pillow and even with a few toys.
