“The employees of Saint Vincent DePaul adopted three families this Christmas season. Through my work with them I was made aware that one of the families was still in need. This particular family consist of a grandmother in her 50’s that moved to Iowa from northern Minnesota to take over parental rights of her 8yr old granddaughter, due to the mother having a drug addiction. This woman left everything she had and ended up moving from Des Moines to Sheridan because she found a job there. They live in an efficiency apartment and make just enough to get by. I spoke to the store manager Jessica Blair Daab and told her I wanted to help. We were able to obtained money orders with your $100 along with a little more from another funding source to pay her rent and utilities for the month of December!
Thank you so much for your generosity.”
