Have you forgotten about our organization that is trying to raise money for those in need, thanks to the government shutdown. Have you spread the word about it? I know I haven’t had time to build a site for it yet but it will eventually have a home on the internet I promise you. But just because it doesn’t have a home on the net yet, doesn’t mean it isn’t really and the problems we are trying to tackle or not just as real either. Below is a post I made on FaceBook this morning. The shutdown is now starting to trickle down and it is really trickling down around here. Hell, forget the trickle it is now more like a rainstorm. If you would read the article below, if you can’t donate, then please pass it along to someone who can. Thank you, Lady A
The government shutdown has been going on for a month. This shutdown included several difference agencies. One of the agencies that was closed down and is hitting our area very hard is the agency that supplemented public housing for the area. Our area is not that economically prosperous to start with at the present time. Since the government subsidized these people living in government housing they are now facing eviction. The government pays half their rent and then they pay the other half. Without the government agency that pays their other half, some landlords are not willing to work with these people. They want the entire amount or else they are going to evict them. It is bad enough that the government is shutdown and people are caught in the middle and used as helpless pons. These are individuals, human beings, for goodness’ sake our Elderly and being treated like this. It is inhumane. Even though my mother has passed away, I know I wouldn’t want her living in one of these public housing projects and when the government shutdowns and can’t uphold its end of the original bargain, out you go. It is a disgrace that our Elderly are being treated like this. Our Elderly should be cared for, live in comfort and not have a worry in the world. But unfortunately in these days and times that is not so. They now worry about facing eviction and being put out on the street. They need help and funds to avoid being evicted. I know we can help these people and others that might be in the same situation. I am only aware of the housing projects in our area that are threatening to evict our Elderly but we would be more than willing to help any others that might be in this same situation if you would only tell us about them. These people need our help. Please help them from being put out on the street in the freezing cold.
The fund collected now are going to the Elderly in our community and others to keep them in their homes and off the streets in this cold weather. Can you imagine the damn government letting our Elderly be put out on the streets.
