The stories below are real. Each person’s need has been authenticated and vetted. In most cases, as the need was urgent, for example, no running water or a utility disconnect notice, we went ahead and “borrowed” on your generosity, hoping that it would be covered.   We ask each person we help to write a Thank-you note.  When you Help One, we will forward you the often heart felt and always gracious note that has been written.  Thank you for considering to “Help One”.
