MAKE A DIFFERENCE

WHO: Amy, a single parent of two children ages 13 and 7.

AGENCY: Stonington Human Services

HIS SITUATION: Amy was diagnosed with leukemia and hasn't been able to work since. She has a major surgical procedure scheduled for early 2016, but recovery will take a significant amount of time and energy, and Amy will not be able to work in the interim. She spends money on trips back and forth between Pawcatuck and Yale-New Haven Hospital for medical appointments.

WHAT TO GIVE: As part of her recovery, the family would like to purchase a new queen-size bed and bedding as well as a reclining chair and or couch. Gift cards for fuel and food would offset their expenses, as well as donations toward their rent and household utility bills.

TO DONATE: Stop by Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or mail to: Stonington Human Services, 166 South Broad Street in Pawcatuck, or call (860) 535-5015 for more information.
