The Story

This You Caring has been set up for the staff of Weimar Medical Center in Weimar,Texas which shut down Friday night, November 25th, 2016 the day after Thanksgiving without paying it's staff. As anyone would imagine this has caused a dire hardship for all involved and many children will do without Christmas as they've come to know it. With most of the staff single mothers and/or everyone living paycheck to paycheck and being primary breadwinners there's a lot of uncertainty for us all this holiday season. One staff member said she has no food in her house, light bill due Monday, and had to cancel her little girl's birthday party Saturday the 26th. Others have car payments, rent, and insurance facing us. Some have disabled spouses. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated.

There was another scheduled meeting Friday the 9th and we were promised again that we would be paid our last two paychecks this current week. It is Tuesday and no one has been funded as of yet. It is very difficult not to be discouraged at this point. Many employees have tried to move on but most have only found per diem work, which is not guaranteed income, and at this time of year it will be difficult to find a full time job. The staff is told that "angel" investors will be at the facility this week to do an assessment of the property and discuss the past payroll. Many of the staff are praying that something good happens. 

We appreciate all the kind words and encouragement from everyone on this site and facebook. We have had great support from the local churches and businesses, such as the Weimar United Church of Christ and Combined Community Action, Inc., thanks again.

We also have had amazing support in the form of a printed shirt fundraiser. This was created by the Whiteside family. All proceeds from this sale will go towards the Weimar Hospital You Caring account. https://spirit-designs-of-texas.myshopify.com/

At this time we still are not any closer to receiving our payroll funds or answers to our questions. Another payroll week is here and we will be going on a month without a paycheck. We thank everyone who has supported the Weimar Medical Center staff during this difficult time.
