From the bio of Alison Taylor, Treasurer
Once I stopped on the side of the road to help a woman with her car. She was out of gas and had to pick up her child at school. She was scared to death she’d be late. I will never forget her. She was frantic, exhausted, told me she was broke and out of work. She, her disabled mom and her son were living in a motel. She had been looking for work everywhere and she just couldn’t seem to get ahead. We got some gas and talked about DSS. A few months later we had a request from her social worker for a deposit on a new apartment and any furnishings we could help with. She had found work and was going to have her own place. I couldn’t wait to write that check.
