The Story

Sammy should be looking forward to summer.  Instead, he's worried about how his large family of eight will eat each day.  His parents lost their jobs and the family is now homeless.  They live in their car and struggle to meet the basic daily needs of life.  His father is trying hard to find a new job.  It's harder for his mom because she's pregnant.  Their family is loving, committed and supportive.  The kids' teachers have said Sammy's parents do more and are more involved than others who have far more.  Sammy & his family need our help.  They need us to stand in the gap for them and be the bridge between where they are today and where they could be tomorrow.  This is not a story of what is but of what could be.  Your help and support will change this family's life.

Progress has been made.  The family is settling in to their home and hopes to be all in soon.  The community has generously provided through the Sunshine for Sammy fund and outside sources, as well.  We are very grateful for all that has been given.  It has indeed made a difference!

Two needs remain...the father needs a safe, reliable vehicle to travel to work and the family needs a full-size refrigerator.  If you or anyone you know would be willing to meet these needs, please call Joanna at 502-379-0336. 

Thank you for supporting this sweet family!

Blessings,
Joanna  Sarver

It seems like there's been a flurry of activity in the last several days!  The family has found and begun moving into a home.  Your generosity has provided the means to pay the downpayment on the new place which is a huge blessing.  Wonderful members of the community have also provided household items both large and small to the family in an effort to further meet their needs. 

The family benefits most from your prayer support as they settle in to a new home, begin preparations to start new schools next month and continue to build a new life. 

Blessings on you today!

If all goes well today, the family will have a new place to live!  Our generous donors have provided the means to pay the downpayment on the new place.  It is a miracle and a direct result of the loving, compassionate hearts of our supporters and donors.  Thank you so much!

The family is in need of a dining room table, eight chairs (if possible), living room suite, washer and dryer.  If you or anyone you know has these items in gently used condition, please call Joanna at 502-379-0336.

Again, we thank all of you for your giving hearts.  Know that you have made a difference!
