Make A Difference: St. Vincent de Paul Place
WHO: Gary, a 57-year-old man
AGENCY: St. Vincent de Paul Place
SITUATION: Since losing his home to foreclosure just over a year ago, Gary has been living in his van and RV without heat, water or electricity. He has been unable to repair his van since it broke down in July, a recent fall has worsened his medical conditions, which include post-traumatic stress disorder, and he has been unable to find an apartment that will accept his doctor-prescribed emotional support dog.
WHAT TO GIVE: Gary needs a one-bedroom apartment whose owner will accept his dog, some help getting his van back on the road and a place where he can store his RV. Other items that would be helpful are gas cards and a AAA membership.
TO DONATE: Monetary donations in the form of checks can be made payable to St. Vincent de Paul Place with "Gary Make a Difference" in the memo. Contact Jillian Corbin, executive director, at (860) 889-7374 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The address for St. Vincent de Paul Place is 120 Cliff St., Norwich, CT 06360.
