"We have a neighbor who is requesting a washer and dryer. She is a 16 year healthcare worker who takes care of dementia and Alzheimer patients working 12 hour shifts. She moved to an apartment with washer and dryer hookups but no washer and dryer. She needs to clean her uniforms and supplies daily or her employer is going to terminate her on May 11. This has to do with corona. Does anyone have these used appliances or a way to get them?"
This is a request that came in this week from one of our conferences. These are parish based groups of volunteers we like to call "Vincentians". They will typically take calls for help with rent or utility bills but sometimes physical goods are needed. Often another conference can help out, but this time our General Manager of Stores, Tony Valencia, found a washer and dryer at the stores.
Thank you to everyone who was able to help out!
Neighbors helping neighbors once again!
