UPDATE! With the help of our donors and the generosity of All Seasons Comfort Control, Helen was given the gift of heat yesterday. More details soon!
Helen is the surviving spouse of a WWII POW in Luxembourg. She was one of 11 children born to Austrian immigrants. She went to school until the 6th grade and had to drop out because her family was struggling financially during the Great Depression. Unfortunately, she is still struggling to make ends meet. Her granddaughter lives with her and is her caretaker, but they cannot afford to replace a broken heater. It is so old it cannot be repaired. They are using space heaters to stay warm this winter. Our hope is raise the funds needed to provide Helen with a new heater and safer living conditions.
