UPDATE: We wanted to make sure and share an update on Connie and her new wheelchair! When I saw her mom Teresa she was overwhelmed and said thank you a million times…I told her how we decided to put the word out and what a great response we had! I told her any other need she had you all have got it covered. (Which you do because you all are awesome…thank you!). We will use any extra funds to help any other needs that come up for the “Juntos Para Una Inclusion” program…Teresa was also excited to know that!
The chair was completely custom made so it took a couple weeks but just yesterday Teresa sent some photos of Connie in her new chair…..PRAISE THE LORD! Thank ya’ll!!!
One of our alumni of our preschool and a very sweet little girl has a need that we want to make happen for her. Connie’s mom who lives in the neighborhood and actually started working with us at Club Esperanza left a card for Chachi today asking for a loan. Connie has some special needs that make life challenging for her. Her mom is asking for a loan to get her a new specialized wheelchair that will better suit her specific needs. She asked for a loan for $600 to be able to buy the chair. Instead of a loan, we are going to buy the chair for Connie and bless their family! If you would like to help that would be awesome! Praise God for Connie’s life and praise God for her mother that loves her and does all she can for her. Amen….
