Lending a Helping Hand

Your Friends for Friends Executive Board met recently and approved nominations to assist four area families with the challenging financial realities that hang over them from dealing with the loss of loved ones and serious medical issues.

  • The first donation went to a single mother who is out of work while recovering from a heart attack.
  • The second donation went to a young family whose father suffered a fatal heart attack on Christmas Day.
  • The third donation went to a family where the young mother of three is recovering from breast cancer surgery.
  • And the fourth donation went to a young woman who was critically injured in a horrific car accident on New Year's Day that took the life of her husband and her two recently engaged close friends.

Our sincere thanks cannot be expressed enough to convey the sincere appreciation we have for our vibrant and generous Friends for Friends extended family. Without your membership and support of all of our FfF activities (Winter Social, Golf Outing, Daily Number, and membership) we would be unable to offer the financial and emotional support to the families like those mentioned above.

It is because of YOU that FfF has grown in each of the last 22 years and we are committed to harnessing the generous spirit of our current (and future!) members so that we may be even more of a helpful presence in our extended community.

Please keep up the great work, continue to encourage friends and family to join FfF, and certainly please keep these families, and all of our neighbors in need in your prayers.

As always, thank you for being a member and making a difference.
