We were able to grant an EPH HOPE Scholarship to one of our families in April. Mom needed a basic laptop and headphones for classes she is taking through W-2. Our HOPE Scholarship was started several years ago and is underwritten primarily by an anonymous donor. The objective is to offer Hope by providing an Opportunity to Prosper through continuing Education. The smile on Mom’s face was priceless!
We received a donation from Dino Calarco, owner of a local franchisee of Microbe Free Solutions, on Friday, April 17
. Dino treated (fogged) one of our transitional units, which disinfected the entire home after a family moved out. Although no one had been sick, the treatment allowed us the safety of getting into the home sooner to clean and prepare for the next family. We are very thankful! The product he uses was developed by Dow Corning and is used in major hotel chains, airlines and with professional sports teams; as well as many local business in our area. Dino found out about the work we do from his best friend’s mothers-in-law, one of our longtime volunteers, Marlene Sharman, and wanted to help. Thank you, Dino and Marlene!
Lastly, many have asked how they can help during this time. Please continue praying for our families, and taking care of yourselves and your loved ones.
