Vignettes

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.
