Here's How We Can Help Today And Tomorrow: Adopt A Family. 

 

Hi. I'm your neighbor, Mary Washington. My friend of 25 years (Sandra) lives in NYC and has personal knowledge of 2 large extended families whom have lost everything in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.  These relatives are now spread all over Arkansas, Louisiana, South Carolina and Texas and are dependent upon their 2 respective kin with a permanent address.  Mrs. Peggy Smith and Ms. Lauren Williams have asked us to help them provide for the IMMEDIATE and ongoing needs of clothing, toiletries, soap, toothpaste, deodorant, lotions, sanitary napkin/tampons, twin size bed sheets and other toiletries of their relatives.  Gift cards are also suggested so that they can purchase what they need.  

 

Friends, we will keep track of these people over the next few weeks and months and offer our support and help them along the long road toward a place they can call home.  

 

Please send donations to:

 

Mrs. Peggy Smith

924 Washington St.

Benton, Louisiana 71006

 

She is housing three families. Gift Cards can come from Target, Wal-Mart, Sears and JCPenny.

 

Please send donations can go to:

Lauren Williams

3335 Brenken Ridge Drive

Houston, Texas 77066

(281) 440-0989



24 members of the  Alexander and Scott Families are relying on her.

Gift Cards can come from - Costco, Sam's Club, Old Navy, Walmart, K-Mart, 

                                                  Stores for food and clothing.

 

**** Both women will not only get these supplies to their family but will also give to people in nearby shelters whom have no-one in a position to help them.  

 

Together we can make a difference, one family at a time,

 

Mary Washington
